The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is aware of the importance of providing greater higher education opportunities to meet increasing demand from high school graduates. Saudi female graduates are eager to enroll in Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University. However, it is currently unable to meet this increasing demand. There is also an urgent need to open up new areas for women's work in light of the Eighth Development Plan for Women, as well as basic needs identified by the Ministry of Education's Plan for the next ten years.

In recognition of this demand, the Council of Ministers issued Royal Decree No. (446/MB) dated 21/01/1432H establishing a community college in Riyadh at Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University. This will provide higher education opportunities for high school graduates and qualify them in specializations that serve the needs of the labor market and the private sector.

Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman's Community College has three main vice deanships, which are: Vice Deanship for Academic Affairs, Vice Deanship for Development and Quality, and Vice Deanship for Student Affairs.

It offers five programs: Administrative Sciences, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Hospitality and Hotel Management, Basic Sciences, and Medical Sciences.​
