SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The University of Northern Virginia's website shows a new main campus in an unlikely location - Sioux Falls, S.D.

The school spent 15 years in Annandale, Va., until state officials shut it down in July after federal immigration officials raided the offices amid allegations that the school's primary function was to allow those enrolled to obtain a visas.

In October, the university announced it was relocating to South Dakota, where an unaccredited school can operate as long as it has an affiliate agreement with an accredited institution.

That agreement was withdrawn in December, and the tiny office suite listed as the Sioux Falls campus sits vacant.

The South Dakota Attorney General's office says it's investigating a complaint about the university.
