College Administrators and Coaches Indicted for Cheating on SAT and ACT Entrance Exams


Dozens of people affiliated with prestigious American universities are facing racketeering charges over facilitating cheating on SAT and ACT tests as well as bribing college coaches, according to an indictment in U.S. District Court in Massachusetts.

According to the indictment, the alleged scam was supposed to help student athletes be admitted into colleges, regardless of their athletic ability.

The indictment states that allegedly, a third party took the SAT and ACT college entrance exams in place of the actual students. The documents also state that some defendants created false athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes so they could be admitted to college.

Several of the defendants are employed as sports coaches or administrators at the University of Southern California. UCLA, Yale, and Wake Forest universities were names in the indictment. According to the documents this scam has been running from 2011 to 2019.

On Twitter, the Boston office of the FBI, stated that dozens of people have been charged in nationwide college admissions cheating and recruitment scandal.
