Apart from the use of Hijab which is compulsory for all female students, here are five rules Islamic Universities expect their students to follow.
Al-Hikmah University in Kwara state, Crescent University in Ogun and Al-Qalam University in Katsina are three prominent Islamic tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
These schools like their Christian counterparts have rules that are designed for the students to guide and conform them to the teachings of Islam.
This means that any student who wishes to study in these universities must be aware of the rules and regulations that guide students' conducts in the institutions.
Apart from the fact that every female Muslim student is expected to wear Hijab, here are five things Islamic universities won't accept from their students.
As stated on the website of Al-Hikmat University, students of this school are not allowed to organise or attend a party either on campus off campus while the university is in session.

Like some Christian universities, the Islamic University in Ilorin also prohibits its students from wearing Jeans dark glasses.
None of these universities allows their male and female students to wear tight-fitting and seen through dresses. Even lecturers are not are not exempted from this dress code policy.
Wearing of flip-flop and sandal at Crescent University is seriously frowned upon. According to a lecturer at the university, all students and lecturer are expected to wear shoes.
