Coaches accused of falsely representing future students, such as athletes, have been released or released by their universities, and schools are reviewing their students to confirm that nobody has been involved.
But it remains to see what happens to the students themselves. According to criminal testimony, some students were knowledgeable about deception, but others did not have any idea.
Will pupils be excluded or allowed to continue attending school? What are the consequences they can face?
CNN appealed to two college admissions experts and a law on higher education about the potential outcome for students whose parents pulled out strings to translate them into prestigious universities.
That's what they should have said.
The destiny of students will be determined "on a case-by-case basis"
Christine Helwick, a former general lawyer at the University of California, said that "there is no right decision" when it comes to the future of these students.
"This should be a solution in each particular case," she said.
If it turns out that the student cheated the exam, similar to the CD or lied in his application to the school, their fate would depend on where they were and when they were in the process of filing the application, whether they had already been credited or ended when fraud was discovered , said Helvik.
If they have already finished, Helwick said that she doubts that the school cancels the degree.
Universities face the most difficult decisions for students who are still studying, said Helvik, and she said that schools should see whether these students know about fraud, whether their parents were behind the student

Those who knew should be expelled, says an expert
According to criminal testimony, not all students understood that their parents are deceiving. Currently, no student falls into the scandal.
Two students reported by affidavit know about the daughters of Elizabeth and Manuel Enriquez, who are charged with paying hundreds of thousands of dollars and services. It is said under oath that their daughters were actively involved. CNN turned to Henriquezes for comments.
According to an oath of testimony, the proctor who was paid to sit next to the oldest daughter of Henrykez and gave answers during the examination "caught" her and her mother "that they were deceiving and getting rid of it.
