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

"Our consistent position among the highest achievers in the NCAA Graduation Success Rate data is a direct reflection of our athletes, coaches and academic staff, and a testament to their unwavering commitment to academic and athletic success while at Loyola".

This year's reflect the number of scholarship student-athletes who entered Rutgers since 2010-11 and graduated within six academic years. The University of Arkansas has steadily improved its GSR rate since the measurement was implemented 13 years ago rising from an initial rate of 60 percent to 80 percent in the numbers released on Wednesday.

"Graduating our student-athletes is the most important thing we do at Auburn University", Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs said. Unlike Federal Graduation Rate, which assesses only first-time, full-time freshmen, GSR also includes transfer students and mid-year enrollees in the sample.

Teams that earned a GSR score of 100 percent included women's basketball and field hockey, a pair of squads that have combined to win 15 national championships, and were joined by men's and women's tennis and volleyball. Thus, those in the 2007 freshman class would have earned a degree by 2013; those in the 2008 class by 2014, those in the 2009 class by 2015, and those in the 2010 class by 2016. "Our goal is to always give our student-athletes the tools to thrive on the playing field as well as the classroom".

An armyman - Lance Naik Vrahma Pal Singh - was also killed in the encounter. 1 Army man lost his life while two others injured. The security forces also gunned down three terrorists in the operation.

Arkansas baseball had a GSR score of 65, which is nine points lower than last year's score of 74. Six teams have a 100 percent GSR: men's fencing, rifle, pistol, men's volleyball, women's tennis and women's volleyball. More specifically, 14 Ohio State programs are equal to or ahead of the national GSR for their sports. This calculation makes it a more complete and accurate look at student-athlete success.

The NCAA also released federal graduation rates of all students.

The Marsha Sharp Center for Student Athletes has spaces for private study, computer labs, supplemental-instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments for the student athletes at Tech, according to the release.

"The consistency of these data across years is a tribute to the dedicated hard work of our student-athletes, but also to the coaches and administrators who understand the academic demands of our institution", Davidson said.
