Actress Lori Loughlin’s daughters are no longer enrolled at the University of Southern California in the wake of allegations linking the actress to the college admissions scandal, according to USA Today.

USC’s registrar’s office told the newspaper Isabella Rose Giannulli and Olivia Jade are no longer enrolled at the university, saying privacy laws barred the school from disclosing further information.

The federal government alleges Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid a dummy nonprofit $500,000 to get their daughters into the university as part of a scheme that allegedly involved fraudulently classifying their daughters as crew recruits.

Actress Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty to her part in the scheme, including paying $15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT answers corrected. She was ordered to pay $30,000 and spend 14 days in prison.

Loughlin has pleaded not guilty. This month, Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, said that if Loughlin is convicted, “I don’t think I’m giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

“The longer the case goes, let’s say she goes through to trial. If it’s after trial, I think certainly we’d be asking for something substantially higher. If she resolved her case short of trial, something a little lower than that. It’s tough to tell at this point,” he added.
