FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota State University has imposed a hiring freeze as it deals with a $1.8 million budget deficit.

Interim NDSU President Richard Hanson announced the move Wednesday. He attributes the budget shortfall to lagging tuition collections and a greater number of tuition waivers.

The school has been criticized for spending on a new president's house and other buildings on campus. Hanson says school officials will be reviewing the budgeting process.
