USC Students Embroiled in Admissions Scandal Barred From Enrolling in Classes, May Get Expelled

March 19, 2019

The University of Southern California has announced that undergrads who submitted falsified applications as part of a massive college admissions scandal--like the daughters of Fuller House star Lori Loughlin--could get expelled. On Monday, USC said in a statement that it has already "placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme," meaning they can't access their transcripts or enroll in new classes. The school is also promising an internal investigation into the matter. "Following the review, we will take the proper action related to their status, up to revoking admission or expulsion,” the college said in a tweet on Monday night.
