Measuring Academic Progress

Division I student-athletes continue to improve in the classroom. The NCAA Academic Progress Rate measures their success.

Student-athletes earn one point for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating.

The NCAA provides support for schools as they work to meet the NCAA’s academic standards.

The APR continues to rise in most sports and demographics.

Failing to meet APR benchmarks could result in postseason ineligibility or penalties.

This year, more than 1,200 teams earned public recognition for outstanding APR scores.

The NCAA provides a searchable database of every team’s APR report.
