Auburn athletics posts highest Graduation Success Rate in program history

In graduation data released by the NCAA Wednesday, Ohio State student-athletes have a four-class average (2007-10) of 86 percent in the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and, in the 2010-11 cohort, have a Federal Graduation Rate (FGR) of 74 percent.

The NCAA developed the Division I Graduation Success Rate in response to college and university presidents who wanted graduation data that more accurately reflect the mobility among all college students today, as the Graduation Success Rate accounts for the academic outcomes of student-athletes who transfer from one institution to another.

"We're very proud of our student-athletes in persisting to graduation", said USU Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student Services Dr. Brian Evans. "Graduating our student-athletes is and always will be a priority for the UConn Division of Athletics and this continuing trend of improvement in the Graduation Success Rates is a direct result of that emphasis".

Five Rutgers programs - women's basketball, field hockey, gymnastics, women's lacrosse and women's swimming - earned flawless GSR scores. Tech has posted an all-time best GSR each year since 2013. Villanova had eight women's programs and six men's programs earn a 100 percent GSR in the release. Under the GSR calculation, institutions are not penalized for outgoing transfer students who leave in good academic standing.

Rutgers' GSR figure ranks tied for sixth among Big Ten football programs and tied for 35th nationally among Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The rate is limited because it ignores the large number of transfer students in higher education, but it is still the only rate that allows a direct comparison between student-athletes and the general student body. Baseball, men's track and field, soccer and softball either improved or maintained their GSR scores.

The Rutgers men's basketball program earned a GSR of 80 percent and a 20 percent FGR.

In addition to the GSR, the NCAA established the academic progress rate that provides institutions with a more real-time indicator of academic success.

Football (82 pct. vs. national average of 75 pct.) and men's basketball (82 pct. vs. national average of 78 pct.) are among the other Georgia Tech programs that exceed the national average for GSR in their respective sports.
