The Alumni association Inc. of Andres Bonifacio College was founded formally in 1968 by a handful of graduates headed by Atty. David Morandarte. Their objective were: to promote mutual interest of the Andres Bonifacio College and its alumni: to help maintain the most beneficial relation between the College and its alumni: and to consistently aid and advise the College in any and every manner deemed desirable. But even before that, the Alumni Association was organized, but unincorporated, in the mid-fifties when Mr. Prudencio Tiu, the first mayor of Manukan, Zamboanga Del Norte, was elected president.
On November 30, 2006, the association drafted a new by-laws, ratified and adopted by an affirmative vote of the members of the Association in an annual meeting duly assembled at the Alumni Hall, College Park, Dipolog City.
Looking back, The Andres Bonifacio College turned out its first high school graduates in April 1947; Associate in Arts and Elementary Teacher’s Certificate graduates in 1948, Bachelors of Secondary Education in 1950; Bachelor of Arts in 1952; Bachelors of Laws in 1953; Bachelor of Science in Commerce in 1954; Surveying in 1960; Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 1972; Vocational-Technical in 1973; Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Bachelor of Science in Social Work in 1979; Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Agriculture in 1981; Bachelor of Science in Criminology in 1983; Master of Arts in English and Literature in 1987; Master of Arts in Filipino in 1988; Master Art in Educational Management in 1991; Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering in 1994; Master of Arts in Public Administration in 1995; Master of Arts in Social Studies in 1998; Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 2000; Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2006; and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering in 2007.
