Fairfax University was an unaccredited[1] distance-learning institution established in Louisiana in 1986 and discontinued in 2004. Prior to losing its state of Louisiana license in 2001, it held graduation ceremonies in the US. Its president was the British academic Alan M. Jones, PhD.[2] In 2005 the University was relaunched as Fairfax University Institute with Alan Jones still as its President. In June 2007 several news media sources reported that it had relocated to the Cayman Islands where it was operating under its new name.[3][4][5]

U.S. state education agencies report that Fairfax operated in the past from the U.S. states of Louisiana (the university had an administration office in Baton Rouge until 2004),[6] Montana, and South Dakota and from the United Kingdom.[1]
