Ohio State athletes post graduation success rate of 86 percent

The NCAA publicly announced the Graduation Success Rate of all Division I institutions today, with George Washington student-athletes achieving a Graduation Success Rate of 94, seven percent higher than the NCAA Division I average of 87, and exceeding last year's reported mark of 93. Arkansas' previous GSR score was 78 a year ago and the latest score is 33 percent higher than the 60 it received in the NCAA's first report in 2005.

Graduation Success Rate is a calculation of how many athletes graduate within six academic years of college enrollment.

"We're very proud of our student-athletes in persisting to graduation", said USU Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student Services Dr. Brian Evans. That broke last year's school record of 82 percent and continued UK's trend of having broken or tied the mark for earning diplomas every year since the NCAA began charting graduation in 2005. Men's tennis earned its third-straight 100, and volleyball has recorded a flawless 100 graduation success rate since the metric began being released. For the four-class average (classes entering Ohio State between 2007-10), the GSR for Buckeye student-athletes was 86 percent. Other notable scores at Arkansas include women's basketball (77), men's cross country/track (79) and women's cross country/track (81).

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. The GSR numbers for most colleges are much higher than the federal graduation rates, which counts any student who leaves an institution as a nongraduate and does not track incoming transfers.

In addition to the GSR, the NCAA established the academic progress rate that provides institutions with a more real-time indicator of academic success.

Women's soccer, softball, women's swimming & diving and volleyball all had a 100 percent GSR.

Eight of Tech's programs were in the top three in the Big 12 Conference with their GSR rates for their respective sports, according to the release. The football, baseball and men's basketball programs were all above the national average with baseball, men's swimming and diving, women's track, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's basketball and gymnastics all scoring 90 or above.
