Strong Showing For Loyola Athletics In NCAA Report
Oct. 24, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS - Loyola University Maryland recorded 100-percent graduation success rate scores for eight sports, according to NCAA graduation success rate numbers released today.
Five men’s sports and three women’s sports posted perfect scores, as the Greyhounds achieved a 95-percent cumulative graduation rate for all sports for the 2003-2006 cohorts that make up this year’s report. That rate is tied for 20th among the 346 NCAA Division I schools included in the report.
Loyola has been ranked in the top-20 of the overall Graduation Success Rate in each of the report’s nine years.
“Loyola has a strong commitment to the academic success of our student-athletes, and we are proud that we have achieved this at the highest of levels again in this report,” said Jim Paquette, assistant vice president and director of athletics at Loyola. “Our student-athletes work tremendously hard to achieve high academic standards, and they are supported by a extraordinary network at Loyola. I would like to personally thank our academic support group, the faculty and coaching staffs here who have helped them during their academic careers.”
Loyola attained 100 percent scores for men’s cross country, men’s lacrosse, men’s soccer, men’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis, women’s basketball, women’s rowing and women’s tennis.
The NCAA developed the Graduation Success Rate as part of its academic reform initiative to more accurately assess the academic success of student-athletes. The Graduation Success Rate also accounts for midyear enrollees and is calculated for every sport, which increases the total number of student-athletes tracked for graduation by more than 37 percent.
Under the calculation, institutions are not penalized for outgoing transfer students who leave in good academic standing. Instead, the outgoing transfers are passed to the receiving institution's Graduation Success Rate cohort.
The NCAA also calculates the federal graduation rate for student-athletes, which does not hold institutions accountable for transfer student-athletes; it is the only rate by which to compare student-athletes to the general student body.
