Davidson's graduation success rate ties for 2nd nationally

Thousands of LSU fans gather and party at tailgates outside of LSU's Tiger Stadium and across campus before the Tigers first home game of the season against Chattanooga on Saturday

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

"I am extremely proud that Georgia Tech continues to have record-setting NCAA Graduation Success Rates", director of athletics Todd Stansbury said.

The NCAA released its Graduation Success Rate data for member schools on Wednesday afternoon, and six Virginia Tech varsity programs recorded a four-year weighted average of 100 percent from the years encompassing 2007-11.

The federal graduation rate for all Division I athletes this year was 68 percent, compared to 66 percent for all students at colleges and universities that play Division I sports. For nine-consecutive years, Tech has either maintained its score or improved from the year before, according to a Tech Athletics news release.

One of Barnhart's goals for UK Athletics is a composite 3.0 grade-point average for all student-athletes. Graduation is on the rise with an average of 100 student-athletes each year earning their degree.

The Huskies achieved a GSR of 67 percent, triple its mark of a year ago.

#SorryNotSorry: Retailers Are Already Rolling Out Black Friday Deals
Friday. "The hottest Best Buy Black Friday 2017 doorbuster deal is a $179.99 50" Sharp LC-50LBU591U 4K UHD Roku Smart TV . In past years, Walmart has put new items on sale every hour or so during the first hours of the Thanksgiving evening.

WKU's largest jumps over the federal rate came on the hardwood as both men's basketball (75) and women's basketball (90) almost doubled the nation's average rate.

The football program's GSR of 85 percent ranked second in the Big Ten, trailing only Northwestern.

The Razorbacks' two most profitable sports, football and men's basketball, recorded their highest scores in the GSR.

The data is impacted by several variables, including players who opt for professional opportunities, and student-athletes in good academic standing who choose to transfer to another program or leave school early. The rates are a four-year rolling average, so athletes who began in 2007 through 2010 are included in the current numbers.

In addition to the GSR, the NCAA established the academic progress rate that provides institutions with a more real-time indicator of academic success. "The continued recognition of the Graduation Success Rate success is a testament to the hard work of all of our students along with the guidance of our coaches and staff". The GSR also accounts for midyear enrollees and is calculated for every sport.

Purdue student-athletes who exhaust their eligibility presently graduate at a 90 percent rate. First, the GSR holds colleges accountable for those student-athletes who transfer into their school.
