Athletic Academic Success Rate

NCAA members, particularly presidents and chancellors, asked the NCAA in the early 2000s to develop a measure of student-athlete graduation success that more accurately reflects modern-day patterns of student enrollment and transfer. As a result, the NCAA created the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) for Division I and the Academic Success Rate (ASR) for Division II.
The NCAA GSR differs from the federal calculation in two important ways. First, the GSR holds colleges accountable for those student-athletes who transfer into their school. Second, the GSR does not penalize colleges whose student-athletes transfer in good academic standing. Essentially, those student-athletes are moved into another college’s cohort. The Division II ASR additionally includes student-athletes who did not receive athletics aid, but did participate in athletics. See https://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/research/graduation-rates and http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/research/summary-division-ii-academic-success-rates for more information.

Athletic Federal Graduation Rate

The Federal Graduation Rate (FGR) is compiled by the U.S. Department of Education and is used as an indicator of academic success for college student-athletes. FGR measures the percentage of first-time, full-time freshman who graduate within six years of entering their original four-year institution.

Title IV responsibilities require that institutions provide graduation for the student body by gender, ethnicity and receipt of Pell grants. We provide this information below for the 2012 Cohort as reported to IPEDS on the Graduation Rates survey of 2017-18 for the Federal Cohort groups.
