Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, Wake Forest and other schools were allegedly involved.
Huffman, the complaint said, made a $15,000 charitable donation "to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter".
After being arrested early Tuesday morning, a distraught Felicity Huffman appeared in court and did not enter a plea. Prosecutors in the US attorney's office in Boston say his company, Edge College & Career Network, amassed $25 million through the fraud.
The coaches were paid by the parents to lie and say that the children were being considered as athletic recruits because the admission process is generally less stringent for athletes, prosecutors said.
Among those charged were college coaches, Hollywood celebrities and other elite socialites.
The mastermind behind the plot, William "Rick" Singer, has pleaded guilty in the case and is cooperating with authorities. "Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so".

In each case, they allegedly took photos of their daughters on rowing machines to make it appear as if they were, in fact, rowers, and submitted these images as part of fake athletic profiles. Huffman's bond was set at $250,000 and she was released, though she was told to stay in the U.S. At the courthouse, Huffman's husband, William H. Macy, sat in the front row and ignored reporters' shouted questions outside.
Also charged is former Yale University women's soccer coach Rudolph "Rudy" Meredith, who is accused of accepting payments from parents of college applicants.
Loughlin and Olivia Jade did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. Singer then arranged a third-party to proctor the exam and secretly correct the girl's answers.
