STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State is reporting another record application year.

President Eric Barron told school trustees at a Friday meeting that applications for the fall have passed last year's record total of 126,450. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1JUPEKe ) that Barron also says online programs and funded faculty research are growing by double-digit percentage gains.

The trustees approved an interim operating and maintenance budget of $4.65 billion. It's intended to keep the university operating beyond July 1 until trustees can approve a final spending plan for the 2015-16 school year.
