Auburn athletics posts highest Graduation Success Rate in program history

Marshall Athletics

Auburn Athletics' federal graduation rate was 69 percent, matching last year's program best.

The NCAA's Academic Performance Rates will be released in the spring 2018 semester.

Starting from the freshman class of 1995, the NCAA gathered GSR data, which started as a part of the NCAA's academic-reform initiative to measure success of Division I student athletes, according to the release.

Also, if you haven't been able to get Siri's attention of late by saying "Hey, Siri", well, Apple fixed that too in this update . The iOS 11 .1.1 software update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app.

Rutgers earned an overall GSR of 85, one point lower than the four-year GSR average for all member schools, and a FGR of 70 percent, two points higher than the national average. This is the ninth-consecutive year where Texas Tech has maintained its score or improved from the year prior. "We are proud of this noteworthy achievement". "Our goal is to always give our student-athletes the tools to thrive on the playing field as well as the classroom". Graduation is on the rise with an average of 100 student-athletes each year earning their degree.

The men's basketball GSR for the time period measured was 67 percent. BU, which has finished first or second among Big 12 schools in composite GSR nine times in the last 11 years, also paced the Big 12 in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2014, 2015 and 2016. The NCAA rate is more accurate than the federally mandated methodology because it includes incoming transfers who receive athletic aid and graduate and deletes from the calculation student-athletes who leave an institution and were academically eligible to compete. The NCAA began gathering GSR data with the freshman class of 1995 and its latest release represents freshmen who enrolled in 2010. The rate is limited because it ignores the large number of transfer students in higher education, but it is still the only rate that allows a direct comparison between student-athletes and the general student body. The GSR also takes into account the academic standing of mid-year enrollees, whereas the federal formula does not.

Wrestling had the greatest year-to-year GSR increase of all Penn State teams with a jump of 16 percentage points. The Marsha Sharp Center for Student-Athletes provides space for private study, computer labs, supplemental instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments.
