Texas Tech had nine programs either improve or maintain their GSR score from the previous year, led by men's golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's tennis and volleyball who were all at 100 percent.

"Intercollegiate athletics offers an invaluable opportunity for student-athletes at the University of Arkansas to earn their degree while competing in their given sport", said Jeff Long, vice chancellor and director of athletics.

"Given the highly rigorous curriculum that many of our student athletes are undertaking, we are proud to see their overall high level of success reflected in this year's GSR data", said Dr. Joseph Tront, the faculty athletics representative to the ACC/NCAA and a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Virginia Tech.

Purdue student-athletes continue to graduate at an impressive rate, according to statistical information released Wednesday by the NCAA.

GU student-athletes are graduating at 99 percent rate, tied for the highest percentage nationally with Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, Loyola Chicago and Yale. The score has improved in all but one year since he took over - and in that one year span it didn't improve, the score stayed the same (81 in 2013 and 2014).

All 13 of Gonzaga's countable programs finished above the national average in their respective sports. "Our student-athletes are accomplishing great things in the classroom, which is reflective of a learning environment created through the hard work of the student-athletes, and, as well, by our coaches and an athletics support staff that is thoroughly committed to their success".

Furthermore, women's cross country/track programs ranked first in the Mountain West, while golf, soccer and men's tennis programs all tied for first in the conference. The NCAA also calculates the federal graduation rate for student-athletes because it is the only rate by which to compare student-athletes with the general student body. Under the GSR calculation, institutions are not penalized for outgoing transfer students who leave in good academic standing. The NCAA began gathering GSR data with the freshman class of 1995 and its latest release represents freshmen who enrolled in 2010. The Marsha Sharp Center for Student-Athletes provides space for private study, computer labs, supplemental instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments.
