Clemson continues to excel in NCAA Graduation Success rate

Temple University student-athletes posted an 88 percent Graduation Success Rate (GSR), according to NCAA data.

This year's reflect the number of scholarship student-athletes who entered Rutgers since 2010-11 and graduated within six academic years.

The NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR), a four-year composite statistic for the freshman classes of 2007-08 through 2010-11, was 85 percent.

"The consistently high scores our teams have posted in the GSR reports over the years are a tribute to our student-athletes that work just as hard in the classroom as they do in competition", Samford director of athletics Martin Newton said.

"In the past decade, we have worked purposefully to provide additional support and encouragement to assist more than 460 Razorback student-athletes annually in achieving academics and athletics success while advancing toward graduation".

The 80 percent score was Arkansas' highest ever in the NCAA's Graduation Success Rate, but ranks last among the 14 universities in the SEC. Men's tennis earned its third-straight 100, and volleyball has recorded a ideal 100 graduation success rate since the metric began being released.

Virginia Tech's GSR combined for all of its varsity sports listed (women's golf hadn't been added as a varsity sport and thus is not part of this report) was 90 percent - three percentage points above the national average.

Rutgers' GSR figure ranks tied for sixth among Big Ten football programs and tied for 35th nationally among Football Bowl Subdivision teams.

Nine teams - baseball, football, men's lacrosse, women's basketball, field hockey, women's golf, gymnastics, women's lacrosse and volleyball - equaled or improved their GSR from the previous year.

WKU's largest jumps over the federal rate came on the hardwood as both men's basketball (75) and women's basketball (90) almost doubled the nation's average rate.

The graduation success rate was developed as an improved measurement tool for tracking student-athletes' academic progress leading toward graduation. Under the calculation, institutions are not penalized for outgoing students who leave in good academic standing.

The GSR takes into account the many different academic paths followed by today's college students.
