The University of Southern California (USC) confirmed that Lori Loughlin’s daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, are still enrolled at the university.
This confirmation comes after TMZ reported that the girls had officially withdrawn due to fears of bullying. “We have confirmed that both Olivia Giannulli and Isabella Giannulli still are enrolled,” USC said Monday in a statement to USA Today.
USC said it is “conducting a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government and will make informed decisions as those reviews are completed.”
TMZ originally reported that the two daughters had withdrawn after their parents were involved in the nation-wide college admissions scam.
Authorities are accusing Olivia Jade and Bella of securing admission to USC after Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 to college admissions scammer Rick Singer. The girls were admitted as members of the crew team even though the girls have reportedly never had experience rowing. (RELATED: Lori Loughlin Allegedly Agreed To Lie If Questioned By The IRS)
It is unclear if the girls have been in class since the scandal broke.
USC announced last week that it was barring students’ accounts who were possibly involved in the admissions scam.
“This prevents the students from registering for classes or acquiring transcripts while their cases are under review,” USC said.
