Baylor Leads Big 12 in Graduation Success Rate

Is Rutgers graduating football players at a high rate according to the NCAA?
It differs from the federal graduation rate in several ways, most notably by not penalizing schools that have transfers who depart in good academic standing and by counting transfers who enroll into a school in good academic standing.
Purdue student-athletes continue to graduate at an impressive rate, according to statistical information released Wednesday by the NCAA.
This is the fourth consecutive year that the department has either maintained or improved upon the previous year's figure.
"Our student-athletes strive for excellence in competition and in the classroom, and we are proud of their successes, achievements and accolades", athletics director Doug Knuth said.
Six Arkansas programs - soccer, swimming/diving, volleyball, women's golf, men's golf and men's tennis - recorded 100 percent graduation rates in the latest reporting cycle.
Mesut Ozil to sign new Arsenal deal?
After Lukas Podolski's retirement from worldwide football, the 29-year-old has also occupied the number for his country. The club has also offered Ozil £275,000-a-week, but his representatives are pressing for £350,000-a-week.
"Our student-athletes continually strive to set the standard on the playing fields, in the classroom and in Bancroft Hall", Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said in a statement. Arkansas' previous GSR score was 78 past year and the latest score is 33 percent higher than the 60 it received in the NCAA's first report in 2005.
Men's golf, men's tennis, women's golf, women's tennis and volleyball all posted ideal scores of 100. In all, 14 of the 17 sports programs at Tech recorded GSR's above the national average.
Graduation Success Rate is a calculation of how many athletes graduate within six academic years of college enrollment. "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".
The GSR was developed to more accurately assess the academic performance of student-athletes. The Academic Progress Rate (APR) is released each spring and focuses on athletes' eligibility during four-year and single-year periods. It also accounts for mid-year enrollees and is calculated for every sport. "Graduating our student-athletes is and always will be a priority for the UConn Division of Athletics and this continuing trend of improvement in the Graduation Success Rates is a direct result of that emphasis". The FGR measures only those students who complete a degree from their initial school and counts all transfer students as academic failures.
