It was started as a school in 1856 in Berhampur and became an intermediate College in 1878. Its earlier name was Native College. The present name Khallikote Autonomous College was conferred on it in 1893 in token of the good gesture shown by Raja of Khallikote who donated 16.5 Acres of land. Degree classes in Arts and Science were begun in 1944 and in Commerce and Mathematics were started from 1963 and in other subjects in subsequent years under affiliation to Berhampur University.

Total Land Area of the College : 16.74 Acres
Recently Govt. of Orrisa has alloted another land area of 2 Acres located adjacent to the present site.
Since the College is more than 130 years old, a large number of merit scholarships/prizes were instituted by different people. The scholarships/prizes have become too many to handle and more over regular renewal of the TDRs/FDRs required signatures of the people who have instituted the prizes. So, the Executive Committee has decided to pool all the amount into one lumpsum amount and the interest accrued be given to UG and PG students basing on their final results.
A felicitation function is being organized in the month of August and the cash prizes are being awarded by the Vice-Chancellor of the Berhampur University to the meritorious students.
