  • Maryland women's basketball and football post record Graduation Success Rates

With an overall score of 89, Baylor led the Big 12 Conference in Graduation Success Rate (GSR) for the fourth-straight year and the eighth time overall according to data released by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) on Wednesday.

"Loyola student-athletes represent some of the best and brightest in the nation", Donna Woodruff, the school's assistant vice president and director of athletics, said in a statement. "Meaningful academic success is valued throughout athletics at Ohio State, and that is reflected in the positive results we see here. It is our expectation and reflects the commitment of our student-athletes, coaches, staff, and the University to the mission".

The GSR and FGR metrics provide slightly different perspectives on graduation. The federal rate cohort accounts for all freshmen student-athletes who receive athletics aid and enter during the fall semester. It makes no accommodation for transfers into or out of an institution. Incoming transfer students, from junior college or four-year schools, who graduate at United Kingdom are not counted as graduates. GSR begins with the federal cohort, and adds transfer students, mid-year enrollees and certain non-scholarship students to the sample. "Earning their degree is the ultimate goal and doing so at a rate of 91 percent is something we can all be proud of".

To calculate GSR, the NCAA considers whether athletes graduate within six years of entering a program.

The GSR was developed to more accurately assess the academic performance of student-athletes.

Among the six Division-I schools in the state of Utah, Utah State ranked first in GSR, ahead of Utah (90), Southern Utah (80), BYU (78), Weber State (77) and Utah Valley (74). The UConn score is also two points above the national Division I average.

Eleven Terps teams had a GSR above 80 percent, with field hockey, women's golf, gymnastics and volleyball along with women's basketball posting flawless scores.

Ten other Husker programs achieved a GSR of 85 percent or higher, including baseball, men's cross country/track, football, men's golf, men's gymnastics, rifle, women's cross country/track, women's golf, soccer and women's swimming. The federal rate does neither. "They recruit with that in mind and structure their programs to foster high achievement in the classroom as well as in the arena".

Utah ranked first or tied for first in GSR among Pac-12 schools in eight sports, all of which earned a flawless score.
