A group of onlookers cheered and yelled “pay my tuition” at actress Lori Loughlin as she arrived at court Wednesday for her alleged role in a national college admissions scandal.

Loughlin was among the roughly 40 people charged in what officials have called the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”

{mosads}The “Fuller House” star was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Those involved in the scam allegedly sought to get prospective students admitted to schools by forging athletic records, bribing coaches and cheating on college entrance exams.

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 for their two daughters to be admitted into the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, although neither participated in the sport.

Since the revelations in the case, Loughlin has been dropped by “Fuller House” and Hallmark, where she frequently starred in made-for-TV movies.
