CHARLESTON, SC - The Citadel military college in South Carolina is considering a request by an incoming Muslim student to wear a hijab, the school said in a statement on Friday.

The public military college in Charleston, founded in 1842, has never before granted an exception to its strict uniform requirements, according to the Washington Post, which cited an unnamed spokeswoman.

Citadel students are required to wear uniforms furnished by the college at nearly all times except when the corps of cadets is furloughed or a cadet is on leave, according to the college's website.
