The University was first founded as a Branch of the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski with Order No. 323 dated 9 August 1975 of the Bureau of the Council of Ministres (State Newspaper No. 65/1975). The first 200 students are admitted 1976/77 in two specialties - Pedagogy for the preparation of teachers for kindergartens and Pedagogy for preparation of teachers for primary schools.

New specialties and faculties are created. Alongside with the education financed by the state, paid education is introduced.
In regards of the reached level of development and the high demand of specialists with university degree especially in the field of Economics, Law and the social activities, with decision of the People's Assembly dated July 1995 (State Newspaper No. 68/1995), the Higher Pedagogical Institute, Blagoevgrad becomes South-West University Neofit Rilski, Blagoevgrad.
In this act are reflected the following basic moments:
Conformity with the requirements of clause 17, paragraph 2, p. 1 of the Law for Higher Education for the preparation of specialists in specialties from the basic fields of science - humanitarian, social, natural and technical.
Existence of the necessary teaching and scientific staff.
Considerable structural changes in the Higher School. Created are the Faculty of Economy, the Faculty of Law and the Medico-pedagogical Faculty. New humanitarian, natural-scientific, pedagogical and technological specialties are created.
On 27 January 1997 with Act No. 16 of the Council of Ministers, the College of Machine Building and Electrotechnics, Blagoevgrad is transformed into Technical College, affiliated in the structure of the South-West University, Blagoevgrad.
