Grades Up Texas Tech Athletes Earn Highest Ever Graduation Success Rate

Five University of CT athletics teams posted flawless Graduation Success Rates (GSR) and a total of 13 Husky squads performed at 90 percent or higher, as announced by the NCAA on Wednesday, November 8. "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".

Georgia Tech's 88-percent GSR is its highest since the NCAA began using the metric in 2005, topping last year's record of 87 percent.

Razorback student-athletes that entered school in a four-year period from 2007-10 earned a school record GSR of 80 percent.

The surgery reduces the amount of food allowed into the stomach, making the patient feel fuller faster so that they consume less. Carey's team has contacted Anello's attorney and have agreed to pay invoices but Anello was not satisfied with their offer.

"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".

Five additional teams - women's cross country/track (96), swimming (95), softball (92), volleyball (92) and women's basketball (90) - earned a score of 90 percent-or-higher. Tech has posted an all-time best GSR each year since 2013.

"We stress student success in all aspects of the University's mission, and this institutional goal extends to the education and achievement of our student-athletes", University President Marc Johnson said. More specifically, 14 Ohio State programs are equal to or ahead of the national GSR for their sports.

Arkansas baseball had a GSR score of 65, which is nine points lower than last year's score of 74. This calculation makes it a more complete and accurate look at student-athlete success.

Loyola had flawless GPRs for men's cross country, men's golf, men's soccer, men's swimming and diving, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's cross country and track and field, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's tennis and women's volleyball.

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. The NCAA also calculates the federal graduation rate for student-athletes because it is the only rate by which to compare student-athletes with the general student body.
