With the grace of Allah, Manara college has been licensed as a college (university) by the office of higher education in the State of New Jersey. This makes Manara college a unique in this field; as it combines two great qualities. It is a college that provides authentic Islamic knowledge and it is an official academic institution that adheres to the standards of the colleges and universities in the US. The license was issued in 2018 and renewed in 2021. We are expecting to finish the accreditation process in couple of years.
