Yale University has removed one of its students who was caught up in the admissions scandal involving wealthy families who paid, in some cases, more than $1 million to bribe their children into college.

CNN cited a post on the school's website that said one student was accepted into the school through the scheme, which in this case involved women's soccer coach Rudy Meredith, and another was denied acceptance.

The network reported Monday that the student who was accepted no longer is a student at the New Haven, Connecticut school, marking the first time a student who was admitted to a school through the admissions scheme was removed by the school.

Rick Singer was the mastermind of the national scheme. In the case of the Yale student who was accepted, he is accused of creating a fraudulent athletic profile of the student and paying Meredith $400,000 after the student got in. The parents of the student allegedly paid Singer $1.2 million.

The daughter of "Full House" star Lori Loughlin got into USC after her parents paid a bribe, but she left the school after the scheme was made public. Her parents and several other people were arrested and charged with several crimes.
