Ohio State athletes post graduation success rate of 86 percent

Marshall Athletics

The GSR subtracts student-athletes who depart for allowable exclusions (e.g. official church mission), as well as those who transfer but would have been academically eligible to compete had they returned to the institution.

"The consistency of these data across years is a tribute to the dedicated hard work of our student-athletes, but also to the coaches and administrators who understand the academic demands of our institution", Davidson said.

The GSR improved two percentage points from last year's rate.

GU student-athletes are graduating at 99 percent rate, tied for the highest percentage nationally with Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, Loyola Chicago and Yale.

"We're proud of the success our student athletes have made in the classroom", Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt said in the release. The federal graduation rate calculation is a snapshot of that same cohort six years later. Five programs - men's cross country/track and field, women's cross country/track and field, golf, women's tennis and volleyball - own ideal 100-percent GSRs.

Purdue student-athletes who exhaust their eligibility presently graduate at a 90 percent rate. Tech has posted an all-time best GSR each year since 2013. This group includes men's basketball, men's golf, men's soccer, men's swimming and diving, women's basketball, lacrosse, softball, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's tennis, and volleyball. The program's GSR was 11 points above the national average for Division I football-playing schools and 10 points above the national average for FBS schools.

The Towson baseball team had the highest Federal Graduation Rate in the CAA, while field hockey, women's soccer and women's swimming and diving had a GSR of 100 percent.

Eight of Texas Tech's 13 athletic programs (cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field are combined) had GSR rates that ranked among the top three in the Big 12 for their respective sports. First, the GSR holds colleges accountable for those student-athletes who transfer into their school.

The current GSR score is calculated from the four entering classes from 2007-2008 through 2010-11. Unlike the federal graduation rate, the GSR holds institutions accountable for transfer students.

The success of Wildcats student-athletes across-the-board stands out even more under closer examination of the latest GSR data.
