Felicity Huffman is “so proud” of her daughter, Sophia Macy, for getting accepted into a top college.

After being embroiled in last year’s infamous college admissions scandal, PEOPLE has confirmed Huffman’s daughter will be attending Carnegie Mellon University’s prestigious theater program this fall. The 19-year-old broke the news herself via Instagram, changing her profile’s bio to read “CMU Drama '24♥️.”

Considering everything that transpired with last year’s scandal, Huffman couldn’t be any prouder about the news. "Felicity is so proud and grateful that Sofia has kept her chin up over the last year," an insider told the outlet. "It was a painful, challenging time and she pulled through it with strength and grace."

According to Page Six, Sophia reportedly retook her the SATs on her own and got accepted into CMU.

As you might recall, the Emmy-winning actress served 11 of her 14 days in jail after pleading guilty to paying $15,000 to have Sophia’s SAT answers corrected after she took the test.

"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," Huffman said in a statement at the time of her case.

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her," she continued. "This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty."
