Auburn athletics posts highest Graduation Success Rate in program history

Grades Up Texas Tech Athletes Earn Highest Ever Graduation Success Rate

Utah State's Graduation Success Rate (GSR), the now 12-year old metric to identify how student-athletes graduate, stands at 91 percent, it was announced by the NCAA national office Wednesday.

The NCAA developed the Graduation Success Rate formula, or GSR, as part of its 2003 academic reform initiatives to better measure student-athlete academic success. In the FGR, student-athletes who transfer count as non-graduates, regardless of their academic standing or subsequent graduation from another institution.

"The FGR, which simply tracks whether students who enter an institution as freshmen graduate from it within six years, is higher for Ohio State's general student body than the subset who are athletes (although both groups posted an increase of one percent in this year's report)", Davidson said.

The graduation rate is based on a comparison of the number of students who entered college and the number of those who graduated within six years.

Auburn Athletics' federal graduation rate was 69 percent, matching last year's program best. The men's golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's tennis and volleyball teams all had a 100 percent GSR score, according to the release. In 2005, the NCAA Division I Committee on Academic Performance implemented the initial release of the GSR data. This is the ninth-consecutive year where Texas Tech has maintained its score or improved from the year prior.

"The graduation rate wasn't acceptable", Alleva said in a press release. "Our goal is to always give our student-athletes the tools to thrive on the playing field as well as the classroom". More specifically, 14 Ohio State programs are equal to or ahead of the national GSR for their sports. Five programs - men's cross country/track and field, women's cross country/track and field, golf, women's tennis and volleyball - own ideal 100-percent GSRs. This calculation makes it a more complete and accurate look at student-athlete success. "As a program, we have made tremendous progress and will continue to work to ensure every student-athlete has an opportunity to pursue their degree and add their name to Senior Walk". Incoming transfer students, from junior college or four-year schools, who graduate at United Kingdom are not counted as graduates. The Marsha Sharp Center for Student-Athletes provides space for private study, computer labs, supplemental instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments.
