BOSTON -

Actress Lori Loughlin has been released on a $1 million bond after accused of paying a university a $500,000 bribe to get her children into college.

As part of her bond arrangement, Loughlin, 54, can travel in the continental U.S. and British Columbia, where she is currently filming.

The "Full House" star has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and other charges.

She and her husband, along with actress Felicity Huffman, who's also charged, will be in court in a couple of weeks for a hearing.

Huffman was arrested at her home Tuesday for her alleged involvement in the scheme.

She appeared in court Tuesday and posted a $250,000 bail.

More than four dozen people have been charged in the nationwide scam.
