To further its pursuit of excellence in education, the College has obtained academic autonomy which was granted to it by the UGC in June 2014 and by the Goa University in August 2014. Such autonomy gives academic freedom to the College in providing education that is globally relevant and allows it to design its own programmes, courses, methods of instruction as well as the evaluation system.

Under its autonomous mode, the College has migrated to a Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and a semester-pattern of study. In conjunction with the highest possible level of academic input, another key thrust is to help students develop necessary skills for employment. To that end, internships in actual work places will give students hands-on experience and prepare them for entry into the world of employment. Among its various other expected outcomes, autonomy will promote healthy practices such as community service and extension activities for the benefit of society. Chowgule College has been a pioneer in higher education since Goa libration, yet it refuses to rest on its laurels.

Among its other initiatives, the acquisition of academic autonomy will propel this institution forward in its stride towards global leadership in imparting higher education that is simultaneously excellent in standards and relevant in application.
