Loughlin was allowed to retain her passport for her work on a film project in British Columbia, NBC News reported. She will have to surrender her passport in December when her projects in Canada are completed, according to TMZ.

The actress and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are among dozens of people that the FBI says allegedly paid up to $6 million in bribes to ensure that their children were accepted to schools such as Yale and Georgetown.

The couple faces charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lori and her husband have been accused of paying a hefty sum, $500,000 to be exact, in bribes to help their daughters, Isabella, 20, and Olivia, 19, get designated as recruits to the USC crew team, though they did not participate in crew.

Earlier on Wednesday, Loughlin was taken into custody in connection with the scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly paid bribes to get their children admitted into top colleges.
