Western Kentucky had three teams post ideal scores and all Hilltopper and Lady Topper sport programs scored well above the Federal Graduation Rate in the NCAA's most recent release of the Graduation Success Rate Report.
Arkansas baseball had a GSR score of 65, which is nine points lower than last year's score of 74.
Though Towson didn't release its overall percentage, its athletes finished with the highest collective GSR since the metric was introduced. Student-athletes who leave an institution while in good academic standing before exhausting athletics eligibility are removed from the cohort of their initial institution (essentially passed to another squad's GSR cohort if they transfer and removed altogether in the case of early departures for professional careers). More specifically, 14 Ohio State programs are equal to or ahead of the national GSR for their sports.
Men's golf, men's tennis, women's golf, women's tennis and volleyball all posted flawless scores of 100. The staff is dedicated to guiding each student athlete through college from time of enrollment into the college to graduation. The GSR numbers for most colleges are much higher than the federal graduation rates, which counts any student who leaves an institution as a nongraduate and does not track incoming transfers.
The Marsha Sharp Center for Student Athletes has spaces for private study, computer labs, supplemental-instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments for the student athletes at Tech, according to the release.
