Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities expect enrollment this year will reach or exceed a record-breaking 115,000 students. State System of Higher Education officials say the increase could be between 2 percent and 3 percent above last year's enrollment of 112,500 students. Gains are in new freshmen and transfer students.

State System spokesman Kenn Marshall says at least 13 campuses expect gains. He says an enrollment estimate is not yet available from Cheyney University.

The state system schools are Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester universities.
