Sri Govindaraja Swamy Arts College, Tirupati was established in the year 1969 as a sister college of Sri Venkateswara Arts College, Tirupati,Andhra Pradesh, affiliated to S. V. University, Tirupati, by the religious institution called Tirumala Tirupati Devastanams (TTD), Tirupat to meet the demands of the increasing number of students for educational necessities. Mr M. Chandramouli Reddy, the then Executive Officer of TTD took initiative in establishing this college with pious and virtual excellence in good faith to promote education in this developing area.

Initially the college was started for men-students only in the rear buildings of S.V. High School, Tirupati and opposite to the District law-courts complex in the centrally located area of Tirupati and was easily accessible to students of all areas and corners of Tirupati.

The college is a private-aided college managed with TTD funds, approved by University Grants Commission, with AISHE Code C-27738.

 The Department of Statistics was established in the college during its inception i.e., in 1969 and achieved many university top ranks till date. It has completed 51 years of successful academic excellence in parallel with the College.

  The Dept. was attached to the Dept. of Mathematics initially, with one lecturer, offering Statistics in B.A. (Mathematics, Economics, Statistics).Later B.Sc (Mathematics, Physics, Statistics) was introduced. Also, practical classes in Statistics were conducted with Manual calculators of HALDA Company and one Attender for the laboratory of Statistics was appointed.
