Lori allegedly "agreed to pay bribes totalling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters" - Isabella Rose Giannulli and Olivia Jade Giannulli - "designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC", the documents stated.

The actress will now be allowed to spend the rest of the year filming a number of projects in Vancouver before surrendering her passport in December once all her contracted work in Hollywood North is completed, according to a report from TMZ.

She appeared in court for a hearing just a few hours later and a spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office told ET the actress would be released on a $250,000 bond.

"One was to cheat on the SAT or ACT, and the other was to use his connections with Division I coaches and use bribes to get these parents' kids into school with fake athletic credentials".

Loughlin, who flew home from Canada, where she was shooting the Hallmark Channel series "When Calls the Heart", is one of several big names accused in the shocking bribery scheme. Ferguson faces a charge of conspiracy to commit racketeering.

"Officially a college student!" she captioned an Instagram photograph she posted in September, which showed her in her USC dorm room decorated with items she had ordered from online retailer Amazon, which paid her for the post.

A statement issued Wednesday by DeVos calls the scheme "disgraceful" and says her department is "looking closely" at the issue.

The lawsuit also named the University of California, Los Angeles, Wake Forest, Georgetown University and others.

In a statement, USC said it is aware of the federal investigation and that the college is "conducting an global investigation and will take employment actions as appropriate". Her next court date is March 29.

"Mostly my parents wanted me to go because both of them didn't go to college". Many people are calling for Sephora to remove the YouTubers makeup product, with one-star reviews being left on the Sephora website's product listing.

Loughlin gained fame for her role as the wholesome Aunt Becky in the 1990s sitcom "Full House".

Loughlin is now filming a TV movie in B.C. for Hallmark Channel, where she has been a mainstay since 2013. He was the school's director of college entrance exam preparation.

Her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, is also charged with fraud, and appeared in court in Los Angeles on Tuesday before being released on $US1 million bail.

Douglas Hodge - the former chief executive of investment firm Pimco, and another of the 33 parents charged in the $US25 million scam - appeared earlier in the day in a Boston court.

The two are among 50 people charged for taking part in the largest such scam in USA history, which steered students into elite universities including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford by cheating the admissions process.
