Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy's daughter Sophia Macy has been accepted to Carnegie Mellon University after re-taking her SATs following the college admissions scandal, People reports.

The outlet reported that the 19-year-old will be following in her parents' footsteps and attending the school's theater program this fall, and Macy herself appeared to confirm the news by updating her Instagram bio to read, "CMU Drama ‘24."

"Felicity is so proud and grateful that Sofia has kept her chin up over the last year," a source told People. "It was a painful, challenging time and she pulled through it with strength and grace."

Huffman served 11 days in prison last October for her involvement in the college admissions scandal, in which she paid $15,000 to have a proctor change Sophia’s SAT answers after she took the test. Huffman pleaded guilty to a single charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, and said at the time, "I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly."

Following the scandal, it was reported that Sophia would delay her college plans after re-taking the SAT. In addition to a fresh start at school, Sophia has also landed a role in an episode of The Twilight Zone's second season on CBS All Access.

Meanwhile, Huffman and Macy's youngest daughter, Georgia, also recently revealed her college plans — she'll be attending Vassar University in the fall.
