UGA sports teams excel mandated APR standards

By UGA Sports Communications

ATHENS — All University of Georgia varsity sports teams exceeded the required score in the annual Academic Progress Rate (APR) report released Wednesday by the NCAA.

The Academic Progress Rate, now in its 11th year, measures the eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. It also serves as a predictor of graduation success.   The most recent APR scores are multi-year rates based on the scores from the 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years.

NCAA sports that fall below the established point cutoff of 930 are subject to penalties including scholarship reductions.  UGA will not incur any penalties as all 20 NCAA Bulldog sports were significantly above the cutoff score.

Ten Georgia teams improved their scores from last year, five remained the same, and three had minor decreases.

With perfect scores of 1,000, the UGA men’s tennis, women’s cross country, and volleyball teams men’s were tops in the SEC.
