LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's Graduation Success Rate (GSR), the now seven-year old metric to identify how student-athletes graduate, stands at 84 percent it was announced by the NCAA national office Tuesday. The rate is a four-year average encompassing the 2001-2004 classes.
Among Utah State's 16 NCAA sponsored sports, two have a 100 percent GSR including softball and men's basketball - who has achieved that metric for four straight years. Other USU sports that excelled within the GSR framework was women's basketball and soccer who both have GSR's of 94 and 91 percent, respectively. No Utah State team has less than a 75 percent graduation success rate.
"We're very proud of our student-athletes in persisting to graduation," said USU associate athletics director for student services Dr. Brian Evans. "Earning their degree is the ultimate goal and doing so at a rate of 84 percent is something we can all be proud of."
The graduation success rate is based on a comparison of the number of student-athletes who entered college and the number of those who graduated within six years of initial enrollment. The GSR subtracts student-athletes who depart for allowable exclusions (e.g. official church mission), as well as those who transfer but would have been academically eligible to compete had they returned to the institution.
