Jose P. Laurel Polytechnic College (JPLPC) was created through Republic Act 5417 on June 15, 1968 as Jose P. Laurel Sr. Memorial School of Arts and Trades (JPLSr.MSAT). It started accepting its first batch of first year high school students in 1970. Six years after, JPLSr. MSAT was permitted to open the Two-Year Technical Trade Education and was accredited in offering Certificate of Technical course in 1987 under DECS Order 56, 59 and 63. Classified as one of the leading vocational schools in Region IV, JPLSr. MSAT was chosen as pilot school for the SEDP Curriculum in 1985 and awarded distinction as Regional Leader School for 1989 SEDP for Technology and Home Economics. On May 21, 1992 through the Republic Act 7518, JPLSr. MSAT was converted to Jose P. Laurel Polytechnic College. In 1996, the Commission on Higher Education granted at JPLPC permission to offer degree courses.
It started offering the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology in 1997 and its first batch of graduates in April 4, 2001. Upon the approval of the Republic Act 9054 in March 21, 2001, the Batangas State University was created integrating JPLPC as one of its autonomous campuses in Batangas. This led into the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the Department of Education, Culture and Sports and Batangas State University concerning the transfer of the JPLPC non-laboratory high school to DECS on May 8, 2001.
At present, five colleges, ie. College of Industrial Technology, College of Teacher Education, College of Engineering & Computing Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences and College of Accountancy, Business, Economics and International Hospitality Management are in full operation at BSU-JPLPC offering a wide array of non-degree and degree courses to students coming from the different localities of Batangas. In June 2005, BSU-JPLPC started its Integrated Laboratory School offering Pre-Elementary and Elementary level.
