As the college bribery scandal continues to rock the University of Southern California (USC), athletic director Lynn Swann said he isn't going anywhere, despite calls asking him to step down.

During a press conference in Boston, Andrew Lelling, U.S. District Attorney for MA, said this was the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice", totaling $25 million in bribes.

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".

The university announced last week that applicants in the current admissions cycle who were connected to the alleged scheme will be denied admission.

USC is one of at least eight universities affected by the biggest college admissions cheating investigation ever prosecuted in the US.

"Following the review, we will take the proper action related to their status, up to revoking admission or expulsion", USC said.

Stanford's sailing program received $770,000 from Singer's foundation and the head coach pleaded guilty on March 12 to charges "that he accepted financial contributions" for agreeing to recommend two prospective students, according to the university.

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband - fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli - were charged with allegedly offering bribes to get their two daughters admitted to college.

The couple are accused of paying $500,000 to have their daughters - Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20 - labeled as crew team recruits at USC, even though neither is a rower.

USC's response to the scandal has mirrored other colleges that moved rapidly to distance themselves from employees who were allegedly involved, tried to shore up confidence in their admissions systems, and sought to identify donations that may be involved.
