Among Utah State's 16 NCAA sponsored sports, two have a 100 percent GSR including men's tennis and men's basketball - who has achieved that metric for seven straight years. USU's softball team (93) and women's basketball team (89) also excelled within the framework.
Utah State's football program has a GSR of 86 percent to rank second in the Mountain West behind Air Force (93) and first among the other football programs in the state of Utah ahead of Utah (66), Weber State (50), BYU (47) and Southern Utah (46).
"We're very proud of our student-athletes in persisting to graduation," said USU Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student Services Dr. Brian Evans. "Earning their degree is the ultimate goal and doing so at a rate of 87 percent is something we can all be proud of."
Among the six Division-I schools in the state of Utah, Utah State ranked first in GSR ahead of Utah (81), BYU (73), Weber State (66), Southern Utah (66) and Utah Valley (65).
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.
