Tuition for the 2019 and 2020 school year costs $57,910, according to the school's website. Coupled with room and board and other fees that add up to roughly $15,000, the total cost to attend the private college is just under $73,000.
Huffman pleaded guilty in May to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for paying $15,000 to have her daughter Sophia’s SAT scores fixed in 2017. Macy was not named in court papers. In September, she was ordered to serve time behind bars.
She was released in October from the Federal Correctional Institution in northern California from a northern California jail, where she served 11 days of a two-week sentence.
