The NCAA released the multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APR) for member institutions on Wednesday, and the University of Evansville is in good standing. UE’s women’s golf, women’s cross country and women’s tennis programs received perfect scores of 1,000 in the APR — a metric that calculates academic progress of each Division I scholarship athlete and counts eligibility, retention and graduation.
Teams must maintain a four-year APR of 930 (or 940 over the previous two years) to remain eligible for postseason competition. The UE men’s soccer team had the lowest APR in the athletic department at 969.
The 930 benchmark is equivalent to a roughly 50 percent graduation rate. In all, 36 Division I teams were ruled ineligible for postseason play in 2014-15, including nine football teams and eight men’s basketball teams. To search the NCAA’s APR database, go here.
