In 1972, the university was established under the name Georgi Dimitrov Agricultural Academy. It united scientific and all higher education institutions in the country, preparing specialists in the mentioned fields of science. It closed in 1975.[2]

In 1982, the Agricultural Academy was established again by the State Council.[2] By 1999, the Academy was renamed the National Center for Agrarian Sciences, then was renamed to its former name Agricultural Academy in 2008.
