    A former college exam proctor has agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with investigators in the sweeping college admissions scheme.

    Court documents filed Tuesday say Igor Dvorskiy agreed to plead guilty to a single charge of conspiracy to commit racketeering. He previously pleaded not guilty in March.

    Dvorskiy is accused of accepting bribes to help parents rig their children's scores on the SAT and ACT. Authorities say he received $10,000 per student while administering tests at a Los Angeles school.

    The charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, but prosecutors say they will seek a sentence at the low end of federal guidelines. Dvorskiy also agreed to give back $150,000.
