Loyola Athletics Continues Strong Performance In NCAA Grad Rates

Loyola student-athletes have the highest NCAA Graduation Success Rate in the State of Maryland.
Oct. 30, 2014

BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland had the highest NCAA Graduation Success Rate percentage in the State of Maryland, according to the numbers released this week by the national association.

For the second year in a row, eight Greyhounds teams recorded scores of 100 percent in the report as Loyola achieved a 95 percent cumulative Graduation Success Rate score for the 2004-2007 cohorts that make up this year's report. The rate is tied for 25th among the 346 NCAA Division I schools included.

Loyola has been ranked in the top-25 nationally of the overall Graduation Success Rate in each of the report's 10 years. The Patriot League continued to lead all NCAA Division I conferences in the report with a combined rate of 93 percent from its 10 full-member institutions

"Loyola student-athletes continue to impress us with their dedication and efforts in the classroom and in their arenas of competition, and we are proud that the NCAA report reflects that," said Jim Paquette, assistant vice president and director of athletics at Loyola. "It is a reflection on their work and the tremendous network of support at Loyola that the University is able to achieve the highest overall rate in the State of Maryland. We are grateful to our Student-Athlete Support Services group, the faculty and coaching staffs here who help them during their 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.
