South Carolina’s military college The Citadel has officially denied a possible incoming cadet’s request to wear a hijab at the school.

Citadel President John Rosa said “a common uniform is ‘essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college’ and could not be altered.”

“While we hope the student will enroll in the college this fall, the Commandant of Cadets, after considerable review, determined the uniform exception cannot be granted,” Rosa said in a statement.
