Aunt Becky is heading to the High Desert for her prison sentence. 

Last month, "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to 2 months in prison for her role in the college admission scandal.

On September 9th, a judge signed off on her request to serve her time at a federal correctional institution in Victorville, California. The facility is located approximately 80 miles from her Los Angeles home.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, initially said they would fight the charges, but ended up with a plea deal after a judge denied their request to dismiss the case. 

The couple had paid about $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as rowing recruits -- but they were not actually rowers.

According to the judgment, Loughlin must surrender to the facility no later than 2pm on November 19th, reported Fox News.

In addition to her time behind bars, Loughlin will also have to pay a $150,000 fine and serve 100 hours of community service. She will also be under supervised release for 2 years.

Loughlin's husband was sentenced to five months in prison, two years of suspended release, a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service.
