    The degrees are illegal in those states that specifically regulate degree use; indeed, Oregon called them a diploma mill last year.

    According to my data base, in the year 2000 they were claiming a campus in Oxford, England, another in Japan, and in 21 other countries.

    By 2002, they were saying that they were a "private international university, and not a UK, USA or Japanese university and not accredited or recognized by any governmental ministry of education" and that they have "no offices or facilities in any other country except for the registered head office in St. Christopher and Nevis”.

    It is unlikely that any properly-recognized university (for instance, members of the Association of Commonwealth Universities) would recognize or accept their degrees.
