KUTZTOWN, Pa.—Enrollment at Kutztown University has dropped by 300 students compared to the previous year, and is down 12 percent since 2010.

The Reading Eagle ( http://bit.ly/1ahuwIR) reports Tuesday that the 12 percent enrollment decline at Kutztown is twice the average drop seen by the 13 other state schools of higher education.

But Kutztown spokesman Matt Santos says no program cuts or layoffs are planned, since more than 100 faculty and staff positions had previously been cut.

State-owned schools enrolled just over 112,100 students this year, down from an all-time high of 119,513 in 2010. Enrollment at 12 of the 14 state universities dropped this year, with only Bloomsburg and West Chester Universities increasing.
