Private colleges, operated by educational societies and philanthropic trusts, play a crucial role in undergraduate college education at Osmania University. There are approximately 700 such colleges (both government and private) offering technical and non-technical courses at both post-graduate and undergraduate levels across various districts under the auspices of Osmania University. The university oversees the academic functioning and serves as the examining body for degree conferral, without any financial obligation for managing these colleges.

These colleges furnish teaching and laboratory facilities to enrolled students, who subsequently sit for examinations administered by the university upon completion of their coursework. However, to aid in their academic development, facilitate their growth by assisting in obtaining government funding, and coordinate activities between the colleges and the University Grants Commission (UGC), Osmania University has established a College Development Council.

Recognizing that approximately 80% of the student population receives education in these colleges, the UGC prioritizes the development and enhancement of the standards of affiliated colleges. Consequently, Osmania University approved the establishment of the College Development Council and appoints a senior faculty member to serve as the Dean of the College Development Council.

Government Colleges

The colleges falling under the second category are those directly administered by the State Government. The government handles the administrative and financial management of these colleges. However, all academic matters, including course design and curriculum development, student evaluation, staff development, and training, fall under the purview of the University.

The University is tasked with maintaining academic standards in these colleges through vigilant monitoring and periodic academic audits. Currently, there are 42 colleges in this category..

Private Colleges

The third category of colleges comprises those under private management. These colleges are solely responsible for their administrative and financial affairs. However, the State Government frequently intervenes in administrative and financial aspects of these institutions.

The University's role is to uphold academic standards by regulating course design, developing curricula, evaluating students, fostering faculty development, recruiting and training staff, and periodically assessing institutional performance. Currently, there are 458 colleges in this category.
