All University of Southern California applicants who are connected to the alleged admissions cheating scheme will be denied admission, university spokesman Gary Polakovic said Wednesday.

Loughlin and actress Felicity Huffman are two of the dozens of wealthy parents accused in the alleged scheme that lasted almost a decade.

Ms Loughlin is expected to appear in court in Boston on Wednesday.

William "Rick" Singer, 58, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges related to running the scheme through his Edge College & Career Network, which charged between $100,000 and $2.5 million per child for the services and masked as contributions to a scam charity Singer runs, according to Reuters.

Loughlin, who did not appear in court on Tuesday, reportedly has been filming a movie in Vancouver. Once the student was accepted to the school, her family paid $1.2 million.

In court in LA this morning, Ms Huffman looked repeatedly at her husband - actor William H Macy - before she was granted bail.

The scheme centered on the owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company that wealthy parents paid to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and to falsify athletic records of students to enable them to secure admission to elite schools, including UCLA, USC, Stanford, Yale and Georgetown, according to court records.

The stunning release came the same day as a report by NJ.com detailing Jackson's ties to gang members in Los Angeles. He led the league with 18.9 yards per catch last season and has averaged 17.4 yards per catch during his career.

Thirteen individuals cited in the indictment were arrested, including Huffman, on Tuesday.

One of the ways the alleged cheating scheme worked is that students would fake learning disabilities and apply and in many cases receive extra time on ACT and SAT tests and be allowed to take the tests one on one with a proctor.

Loughlin and her husband are among dozens of people that the Federal Bureau of Investigation says allegedly paid up to $6 million in bribes to ensure that their children were accepted to schools such as Yale and Georgetown.

Prosecutors have charged 33 parents, including Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin; Loughlin's husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli; and Bill McGlashan, a founder of TPG Capital, one of the largest private equity investment firms in the world.

Others facing charges are the former women's soccer coach at Yale, the senior associate athletic director at the University of Southern California, the women's volleyball coach at Wake Forest University, and the sailing coach at Stanford. She, along with Full House actress Lori Loughlin, are accused of participating in a scheme along with other elite parents to scam their children into prestigious universities using false information.

In a 2018 video posted on her YouTube page, Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, said she wasn't interested in school.

He was charged Tuesday along with almost 50 other people and faces conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering counts.
