Accelerating Academic Success Program

Providing opportunities for learning is at the heart of the NCAA’s mission, and the Association holds schools accountable for the academic success of student-athletes by tracking academic progress. The NCAA provides support for schools as they work to meet the NCAA’s academic standards via the Accelerating Academic Success Program, which assists Division I schools as they develop programs and systems designed to increase graduation rates and ensure academic success.

Established in 2012 by the NCAA Executive Committee (which is now the Board of Governors), the AASP includes grants for eligible schools and student-athletes, as well as an annual conference.
