After program design in 1997, the former Guizhou Agricultural College, Guizhou University, Guizhou Provincial College of Art, and Guizhou Agriculture Management Cadres College were merged into Guizhou University. It was at that time that College of Agricultural was first formed. In August 2004, Guizhou University and the former Guizhou University of Technology were merged to form the new Guizhou University.
