LOGAN, Utah - The NCAA released its latest multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APR) on Wednesday and it showed that Utah State's student-athletes are remaining in school and making progress toward a degree. The report is based on APR information submitted by member institutions for the 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08 academic years.
Every Division I sports team calculates its APR annually, based on the eligibility, retention and graduation of each student-athlete on scholarship.
"I'm pleased with our APR for this past year, but know we can do better," said Dr. Brian Evans, Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Services. "We haven't made the top 10 percent yet with any individual teams, so that is something we'll strive for."
Teams that score below a 925 and have a student-athlete fail academically and leave school can lose that scholarship. Also, teams scoring less than 900 in the latest report received warning letters from the NCAA. Continued underperformance could lead to scholarship losses and reductions in practice and playing time when a team posts below a 900 APR for a second straight year.
Utah State was one of just three schools in the Western Athletic Conference that did not receive any warnings or scholarship reductions from the NCAA.
