The two are charged with paying $500,000 USA in bribes to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though neither is a rower.

They were among 50 people charged last month in the scandal that has embroiled elite school across the country, including Stanford, Georgetown and Yale.

Loughlin and Giannulli appeared in federal court in Boston two weeks ago, but they had not publicly indicated how they plan to plea until now.

Actress Lori Loughlin said on Monday she will plead not guilty to charges that she participated in what prosecutors say was the largest college admissions scandal uncovered in USA history. The judge granted their requests not to appear.

In all, 33 parents have been charged in the college admissions scandal.

And on Monday, the embattled couple pled not guilty to charges of conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering in alleged connection to the massive college bribery scheme.

At least seven other parents under indictment for allegedly paying thousands to scam mastermind William "Rick" Singer have filed similar electronic not guilty pleas along with their planned waiver of appearance at arraignment.

Their daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli - a social media star who has a popular YouTube channel - was dropped from deals with cosmetics retailer Sephora and hair products company TRESemme after her parents' arrest.

Huffman - famous for her Academy Award-nominated role in "Transamerica" and the television show "Desperate Housewives" - allegedly gave $15,000 to Singer "to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of their oldest daughter", court documents allege.

Loughlin and Giannulli face up to 40 years in prison each, but federal sentencing guidelines are closer to a five year sentence. The two actresses, along with coaches, admissions counselors and parents were accused of such alleged crimes as falsifying SAT scores and lying about the athletic skills of their children.
