Loyola Teams Excel In NCAA's Graduation Success Rate Report
Oct. 25, 2012
INDIANAPOLIS - Loyola University Maryland recorded 100-percent graduation success rate scores for nine sports, according to NCAA graduation success rate numbers released today.
Five women's sports and four men's sports posted perfect scores, as the Greyhounds achieved a 96-percent cumulative graduation rate for all sports for the 2002-2005 cohorts that make up this year's report. That rate is tied for 19th among the 340 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 eight years.
"Our student athletes, coaches and academic support staff work tremendously hard during their academic careers at Loyola, and this is a reflection of that dedication," said Jim Paquette, assistant vice president and director of athletics at Loyola. "Our student-athlete's commitment, and that of those within Loyola's community who support their academic success, has continued to push them to the highest achievements possible."
Loyola attained 100 percent scores for women's basketball, swimming and diving, tennis, cross country/track and field, and volleyball. Four men's sports matched the perfect scores: cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, and 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.
