BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Officials say a North Dakota University System computer server has been hacked but there is no evidence that any personal information has been accessed.

Interim Chancellor Larry Skogen says records of more than 290,000 current and former students and about 780 faculty and staff were housed on the server.

Skogen says personal information — including Social Security numbers — was on the server.

Skogen says the breach was discovered last month and law enforcement has been alerted.

The university system says a website and a call center are being created to assist people who have questions.
