Yingli College was established by the Association of Phom Graduates and Officer (APGO) on 09 September, 1992. It was inaugurated by Mr. T. C. Sangtam, the then ADC, Longleng as the chief guest. In the beginning, the college was functioning at the old ADC office as the academic building and the Sub-Divisional Agri-Office building as Lecturers' hostel after obtaining the temporary permit from the department. The Government of Nagaland recognized and granted permission for opening the college through its order dated 25.09.1992. For the smooth functioning of the college, the College Management Committee (CMC) was constituted with Shri. Y. B. Angam as the Chairman.

The college was shifted from Old ADC Colony (Leinak ward) to the permanent campus, which is now located in a sprawling area of 52.47 acres of land donated by the Bhumnyu Village Council at Longongkang Campus, 2 kilometres away from Longleng district headquarters. The campus was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Nagaland Shri. Neiphiu Rio on June 06, 2003. The college adopted 'Longongkang Campus' as the official name for its permanent campus.
