NCAA Releases APR Data; OU Demonstrates Continued Classroom Success

The Missouri men's basketball team posted an Academic Progress Rate (APR) of 930 for 2015-16, according to figures released Wednesday by the NCAA.

The 16 programs are men's basketball, women's lacrosse, men's cross country, men's and women's fencing, field hockey, men's and women's golf, gymnastics, rowing, men's soccer, softball, women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, and volleyball.

All of the University of Wyoming's athletics teams once again far exceeded the 930 minimum four-year average benchmark set by the NCAA to qualify for postseason competition.

Men's tennis, women's cross country and volleyball (under former coach Lizzy Stemke) each scored a flawless 1,000.

The UConn men's basketball team had flawless 1000s in both its single-year and multi-year score. The men's golf and women's tennis teams were each awarded NCAA Public Recognition awards last week for their flawless scores.

The USC football team had a 968 Academic Progress Rate score, nine points higher than a year earlier, while the men's basketball team had a 969 score, 10 points higher than a year earlier.

The men's golf team's multi-year rate was 827 and its 2015-16 score was 739; baseball was 850/922 and women's cross country was 914/900.

For the 2015-16 academic year, the University of Idaho's men's basketball, men's cross country, men's golf, women's basketball, women's cross country, women's golf and women's tennis teams earned a ideal 1000 April score.

Last week, the Razorback women's golf program earned a NCAA Public Recognition Award for ranking among the top 10 percent of women's golf teams nationally.

The football program checked in with a rolling four-year score of 984, good for second in the Pac-12 behind Stanford at 985.

The North Carolina Tar Heels had 16 athletic programs score a ideal 1000 in April. Credit for our continuing improvement in April scores also needs to be shared with our coaching staffs, our academic counseling office and UW faculty and staff. "Our expectation is to have each of our programs above the national average and we will continue to work towards that goal". The 263 student-athletes to earn the honor marked the 18th straight semester K-State has placed 200 or more student-athletes on the honor roll. Had Missouri fallen short of a four-year average of 930, it would have been subjected to NCAA sanctions - potentially having to sit out a year of postseason play.

The report is based on four-year calculations of data from the 2012-13 through 2015-16 academic year. The overall score of 981 is at an all-time high, and an improvement of two points from 2014-15.

Golf, soccer, tennis and volleyball also have ideal multiyear APRs with no women's sport scoring lower than 988.

The Spartans' baseball team had the school's lowest performance at 965.

Any student-athlete receiving athletic aid can earn up to four points per year for being academically eligible and remaining enrolled in the institution. A team's April is the total number of eligibility/retention points earned divided by the maximum number of points possible.

The latest NCAA APR numbers are good for SC.

Programs must have a multiyear April of 930 or better to avoid penalties such as postseason bans or scholarship losses.
