Egypt's Cairo University decided to refer a student to an internal investigation panel after she had posted videos on social media platforms that challenge public morality, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported on Monday.
The student, who has about one million followers on TikTok, posted a video calling upon ladies to go live on online applications for short videos called "likee" and make friends "decently" in return for payment.
The video stirred anger on social media over the last couple of days.
Cairo University President Mohamed Othman El-Khesht said he had received several messages that a student in Cairo University was calling upon females to shoot "inappropriate" videos in return for money.
He stressed that the university will impose the maximum penalty against the student, and may even expel her for acting against the university's values and traditions.
