AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas athletic programs once again have their annual set of data to prove the Longhorns are advancing toward their ultimate goal – to graduate all student-athletes.
UT surpassed the required NCAA standard in all 20 of its intercollegiate athletics sport programs, according to the multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) released on Tuesday. Last week, six University of Texas teams (baseball, men’s basketball, men’s tennis, women’s golf, soccer and volleyball) received public recognition awards for their latest APR.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete during the school year. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
This APR is based on data submitted by the institution for the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
