In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful...

OVERVIEW

Al-Imaam Muhammad bin Su'ood Islaamic University, or Al-Imaam University for short, opened with two colleges, the College of 'Arabic Studies and the College of Islaamic Law in 1953 in Ar-Riyaadh. Since then, many colleges have been added, as well as branches in other cities. Similar to Al-Madeenah and Umm Al-Quraa, non-'Arabic speakers have a chance to learn 'Arabic here from the beginning in an 'Arabic Language Institute designed specifically for them. They can then continue their studies in 'Arabic or seek admission to one of the colleges.

 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION

To be considered for admission, applicants must be 25 years old or younger with a high school diploma (at least 80% average or better). Their application must include photographs, copies of passport, birth and health certifictes, high school transcripts and a copy of the diploma, all verified by the Saudi Embassy of their country. Also required are letters of recommendation from known Islaamic organizations or personalities

 

ESTIMATED COSTS AND LIVING EXPENSES

The school provides the students with a monthly salary of SR 845 (about $225), a round-trip plane ticket yearly, discounted meals, and free housing (for single students only). A single student should bring about $1,000 to get by initially. After that, the monthly salary is sufficient for single students living in the dormitory. Married students who have children should expect their living expenses to be $6,000 to $12,000 yearly, depending on their standard of living, number of children, etc.
