LSU athletics reaches 90 percent in Graduation Success Rate

Women's tennis posted a ideal GSR score for the third consecutive year and for the fifth time in program history. "They make us proud as they earn meaningful degrees that will serve them well in life after Maryland". "Our goal is to always give our student-athletes the tools to thrive on the playing field as well as the classroom".

The NCAA developed the Graduation Success Rate formula, or GSR, as part of its 2003 academic reform initiatives to better measure student-athlete academic success. For the four-class average (classes entering Ohio State between 2007-10), the GSR for Buckeye student-athletes was 86 percent.

"The FGR, which simply tracks whether students who enter an institution as freshmen graduate from it within six years, is higher for Ohio State's general student body than the subset who are athletes (although both groups posted an increase of one percent in this year's report)", Davidson said.

In yet another record-setting academic achievement, University of Arkansas student-athletes have set a new standard for graduation success rate, according to a report released on Wednesday by the NCAA.

The data is impacted by several variables, including players who opt for professional opportunities, and student-athletes in good academic standing who choose to transfer to another program or leave school early.

Division I scholarship athletes in many ways ought to graduate at higher rates than their peers, given that their financial needs are largely met. The staff is dedicated to guiding each student athlete through college from time of enrollment into the college to graduation. "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".
