Temple student-athletes post 88 percent graduation success rate

Nebraska Athletics posted its highest Graduation Success Rate in the 13-year history of the rate, according the NCAA. "On the other hand, the GSR, which adjusts for successful transfers and professionalization, shows that the student-athletes in the 2010-11 cohort graduated at a higher rate than the FGR of their colleagues". Statistics represent students that began their studies during the 2010-11 academic year.

Implemented 13 years ago by the NCAA, field hockey and women's tennis continued their streak of 13-straight seasons with a 100 percent GSR.

GU student-athletes are graduating at 99 percent rate, tied for the highest percentage nationally with Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, Loyola Chicago and Yale.

"The Student-Athlete Success Program staff and our coaches continue to foster a culture of academic success and our student-athletes have embraced this fully while continuing to perform at elite levels in competition", director of athletics David Benedict said. The 10 teams that had flawless scores were men's basketball, men's track and cross country, men's golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's track and cross country, women's golf, soccer, women's tennis and volleyball. For the four-class average (classes entering Ohio State between 2007-10), the GSR for Buckeye student-athletes was 86 percent.

The Hokies' 86 percent GSR in football ranked fifth in the ACC and first among public universities in the league.

"This is the ninth-consecutive year where Texas Tech has maintained its score or improved from the year prior", Texas Tech said in a written statement.

In men's basketball, the Hokies' GSR was 80 percent, a number that ranked tied for eighth in the ACC and was two percentage points above the FBS national average. More specifically, 14 Ohio State programs are equal to or ahead of the national GSR for their sports. Unlike the federal graduation rate, the GSR holds institutions accountable for transfer students. Baseball, men's track and field, soccer and softball, meanwhile, all held steady or improved their GSR scores.

The GSR provides a more inclusive calculation of student-athlete academic success. Women's tennis posted a ideal GSR score for the third consecutive year and for the fifth time in program history.
