The indictment alleges the scheme helped students gain acceptance to top schools by helping them cheat on college exams. She ended up scoring a 1420 - 400 points higher than she had gotten on a PSAT taken a year earlier, according to court documents.
As The Daily Wire previously reported, Huffman and almost 50 other people, including fellow actress Lori Loughlin and many high-profile CEOs, were charged for allegedly bribing officials at various colleges and cheating on entrance exams to get their kids into the schools.
Defendant William Singer was paid roughly $25 million dollars by parents to help their children get in to schools.
Authorities said in many cases the students were not aware of the fraud.
As she sat behind glass in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday, Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman was far from the ABC backlot where she once starred in the popular primetime show.
The two are among 50 people charged for taking part in the largest such scam in USA history, which steered students into elite universities including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford by cheating the admissions process.

It's unclear how the Shameless star is spending his birthday, although hours before, he was supporting Huffman, 56, at the federal detention center in Los Angeles where she was being held on Tuesday.
Just under 50 people were charged in court on Tuesday.
Arrest warrants were issued Tuesday for 39 parents, including Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, and actress Felicity Huffman.
The sums that authorities say the accused parents paid in bribes would, for many, finance a college education many times over.
Loughlin allegedly paid $500,000 to have her two daughters labeled as rowers who were being recruited to the University of Southern California. The actress faces a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
The parents were then advised to choose one of two test centres that Singer's company said it had control over: one in Houston, Texas, and the other in West Hollywood, California.
"Huffman and her spouse made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 to KWF to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter", the criminal affidavit reads.
