It was re-enacted in 1985 to provide for the merger of the Audio-Visual Centre of the Ministry of Education. It is defined as a tertiary education institution under the schedule of the Tertiary Education Commission Act of 1988. The MCA is administered by a Board which is advised by an Advisory Council. The object of the college is to promote education, arts, science and culture generally through mass media and distance education methods.
