School administrators announced that holds were placed on the students' accounts, which automatically prevents them from enrolling in classes or acquiring transcripts while their cases are under review.

University of Southern California students allegedly embroiled in the college admissions scandal that has rocked elite universities across the country won't be allowed to register for classes, while officials conduct an internal investigation.

A Georgetown spokesman said on Tuesday the school would not comment on disciplinary action against individual students linked to the scandal, but added it was "reviewing the details of the indictment, examining our records, and will be taking appropriate action". Following the review, we will take the proper action related to their status, up to revoking admission or expulsion'.

In a letter to students, Salovey said the school's policy "is to rescind the admission of students who falsified their Yale College applications". Several people from his department, including the university's senior associate athletic director, Donna Heinel, had been arrested and charged with racketeering and bribery in connection with attempts to get various students into USC and other high profile colleges by way of the athletic program, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The parent claimed her child, who possessed a 4.2 GPA, was denied admittance because of wealthy parents committing fraud.

The university is still investigating exactly how many current students are implicated.

Prosecutors said some students involved in the scandal were not aware their parents had made the alleged arrangements, although in other cases they knowingly took part. They were applying to the school without the knowledge that "unqualified students were slipping in through the back door of the admissions process", the Trojan reported, citing the lawsuit.
