We offer a Master of Arts in Islamic Studies in conjunction with the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy (ISRA) and Charles Sturt University (CSU).

No, although you will register with Respect and take several courses with us, the final degree will be issued by Charles Sturt University.

Charles Sturt University is an internationally-recognized Australian University (See -University link-). This degree is accredited through the Australian government and is internationally recognized (See World Education Services).

By collaborating with these institutions, Respect is hoping to serve a larger community who might not necessarily have access to accredited degrees.  Through our partnership we are able to offer an accredited Master’s degree, fully online. This allows students all over the world to get a higher education without the difficulty and expense of applying for visas and travelling.

This info will be updated.

RGS offers all courses 100% online, so there is no need for visa applications. You can apply by completing the form on the registration page.

Respect Graduate School offers scholarships to majority of its master students each semester based on need and merit. Partial and full scholarships are also available for those students who are ready to work part time at Respect. Additionally, students who complete the coursework at Respect are eligible to have refund for the 30% of the tuition charged by Charles Sturt University for the courses taught by ISRA. Please contact info@respectgs.us to see if you qualify for financial aid today.

Applicants whose native language is other than English and who have not completed an undergraduate or graduate program in an English-speaking country must submit a valid  IBT TOEFL score of no less than 60 or a IELTS score of no less than 6. Applicants who do not meet the TOEFL requirement may be granted provisional admission at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. 

Applicants to the MAIS program are not required to have prior education in a relevant field, neither will such students be extended preferential treatment. RGS values academic diversity and believes that students with diverse undergraduate experiences will offer rich intellectual perspectives.

No, all of the classes will be fully online. However, students who live near our campus will have full access to our facilities, masjid, and library.

Students may choose to register as an auditor. Auditors participate in the course and pay the same tuition, but are not responsible for completing assignment and do not receive credit for courses. Students may also want to consider one of our non-credit certification programs such as the Qur’an Certificate Program.

Upon completion of the application, the applicant will receive an email describing the status of their application and the expected time frame for a final decision.

Please contact our registrar for help with your application.
