The Latest on a Muslim girl from Florida who plans to attend Vermont's Norwich University (all times local):

4 p.m.

A 17-year-old Muslim girl from Florida says she's grateful Vermont's Norwich University agreed to allow her to wear a headscarf beneath her military uniform so she can achieve her goal of becoming a naval officer.

Sana Hamze had initially hoped to attend The Citadel in South Carolina, but the school would not change its uniform policy to accommodate her headscarf.

Norwich agreed to her request. The "religious headgear" must be in "authorized colors and fabrics that can be covered" by the uniform.

Sana's father, Nezar Hamze, says he's pleased his daughter is being accepted and that she'll be able to practice her faith.

Norwich is the nation's oldest private military college and touts itself as the birthplace of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps.

A 17-year-old Muslim girl from Florida who hopes to become a Navy officer says she's decided to attend Vermont's Norwich University after the military school said it would allow her to wear her headscarf beneath her uniform.

Sana Hamze had initially hoped to attend The Citadel in South Carolina, but the school would not change its uniform policy to accommodate her headscarf. She says Norwich agreed to her request.

Norwich officials say privacy rules prevent them from confirming that Sana had agreed to attend their school. But last week President Richard Schneider told the university community the school had agreed to allow an accepted female student to wear a hijab.
