FARGO, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota State University has lifted its evacuation order.

The university ordered all students and employees to leave campus Monday morning after it received a bomb threat.

The university says it re-opened campus at 1 p.m. CDT and classes are scheduled to resume at 2 p.m. It says university police will spend the next hour unlocking university buildings.

The evacuation order at NDSU came about the same time as one at The University of Texas at Austin, where officials also say they received a bomb threat. FBI spokesman Kyle Loven says the agency is trying to determine if the two threats were related.

More than 14,000 students are enrolled at NDSU. The university cleared its main and downtown campuses following the threat, along with all of its agricultural facilities.
