Lori Loughlin’s daughters could be banned from the college their mother allegedly bribed to get them into for being ‘disruptive individuals’, according to reports.
Olivia, 19, and Isabella Loughlin, 20, dropped out of the University of Southern California (USC) amid an ongoing investigation by school officials.
But the pair may not be out of the woods yet as there will still be a misconduct hearing to determine if the girls should be banned from USC and its grounds, TMZ reports.

The publication claims the girls could be banned on the basis of being ‘disruptive individuals’.
It’s not clear whether they’re being branded disruptive for prior actions at the college, or due to the frenzy on campus – and in the media – following the bribery scandal.
Students at USC have referred 60 of their classmates to the Judicial Council in the days after the story broke.

The atmosphere at the university is reportedly ‘hysterical’, with suspicion rife that many more students cheated or bribed their way into the prestigious college.
Of the 60 complaints, the Council is seriously investigating three. Two of these are said to be freshman students, who were recommended to the school’s athletic department by Rick Singer – the alleged mastermind of the scam.
Olivia is said to be furious with Loughlin and her father Mossimo Giannulli, believing they have ‘ruined everything’.
The parents are accused of paying over $500,000 to guarantee their daughters’ admission to USC.
Olivia was well-known in the world of YouTube and beauty blogging. But last week she saw her name in the headlines for all the wrong reasons after her parents were charged
‘Bella and Olivia are suffering in their own ways from the fallout of their parents’ decisions,’ a source told Entertainment Tonight this week.
While Bella was ‘far more invested in college and would have love to have completed USC’, Olivia is devastated over the damage that has been done to her brand.
‘[Olivia] is really angry with her parents because she told them she did not want to go to college and she was pushed,’ the source added.
‘She has been passionate about her career and wanted to work and was doing well, but that wasn’t enough. Her parents said she would have to juggle college and her career.’

‘Now she’s devastated because everything she built imploded before her eyes. She feels they ruined everything.’
Loughlin and her family have reportedly not left their Bel Air home since the scandal came to light.
‘The whole family is still laying low,’ a source told People. ‘Lori and Mossimo both have court dates in Boston. It’s still a very stressful time for them all.’
‘They are living in the moment and that’s all they can do right now. For them, this is all still a nightmare.’
Olivia has since lost lucrative partnership deals with both Seophora and TRESemme
Loughlin and Giannulli’s court cases were both postponed to April 3 after their attorney asked the judge to delay the hearing due to the legal team’s scheduling conflicts. The pair were initially scheduled to appear on March 29.
Since the scandal came to light, a number of Olivia’s past YouTube videos have resurfaced.
In one video filmed on her last day of high school, Olivia admitted that she rarely attended classes.
‘I’m, like, excited to go prank my, like, do the school prank, but I’m also literally never at school that I think my class doesn’t even — and maybe they forget I go there!’ the teen said, before claiming she was ‘just kidding!’

Olivia also previously came under fire for admitting in her vlogs that she didn’t really care about college ‘but wanted to experience game days and partying’.
And, in a podcast interview, Olivia revealed that she hadn’t initially wanted to go to college but that her parents ‘really wanted me to go’.
Court documents released last week also alleged that Olivia hadn’t even written her own college applications.

Loughlin and Gianulli emailed William Rick Singer, the mastermind behind the college bribery scandal, about Olivia and Isabella’s college prospects in 2016.
They allegedly paid $500,000 total in bribes to have their daughters admitted to USC as crew recruits with the help of Singer and USC senior associate athletic director Dr Donna Heinel.
Isabella received her admission letter the following March. The same exact process was then repeated with Olivia, documents claim.

Problems arose however when Olivia’s guidance counselor became curious as to how she managed to receive admission based on her involvement in crew when she didn’t even row.
At the same time, Loughlin complained that her daughter was having difficulty filling out her other college applications, prompting Singer to ask an employee to take care of the task.
This was done so as not to draw attention to the fact that it was already confirmed Olivia had received conditional admission to USC.
On November 2017, Singer emailed Loughlin and Giannulli with an email bearing the subject line ‘CONGRATULATIONS’. Attached was Olivia’s conditional acceptance letter to USC.
‘This is wonderful news,’ Loughlin responded, adding a high-five emoji.
Loughlin and Giannulli are reportedly in full support of the girls’ decision to withdraw. They have no immediate plans to try and enroll in another school.
The fallout has been swift for Loughlin as well.
Both she and Giannulli had to each post $1million bond and put their Bel Air home up as collateral after they were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud last week.
Loughlin was then dropped from the final season of Fuller House, where she had reprised her role as Aunt Becky, as well as from the Hallmark Channel.
