Enrollment declines continue at Pennsylvania State System universities

Enrollment at Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities continued an overall slide this fall for the ninth consecutive year.

A new census taken on the 15th day of class at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education universities showed an enrollment decline of 2.6% between 2018 and 2019. Overall, enrollment has fallen by 20% or just over 24,000 students since peaking at 119,513 in 2010.

The State System universities in Western Pennsylvania are California, Clarion, Edinboro, Indiana and Slippery Rock.

The nine-year decline is equivalent to the combined current enrollments of Indiana, Slippery Rock and Clarion universities. It is especially significant at the universities that rely on tuition for about three quarters of their revenue.
