Greyhounds Excel In Latest NCAA Graduation Success Rate Report

Loyola has been in the nation's top-25 for each of the 11 years the NCAA has conducted the Graduation Success Rate report.
Nov. 4, 2015

BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland ranked tied for 14th out of 345 NCAA Division I schools in the organization's latest Graduation Success Rate Report published today, and the Greyhounds again had the highest rate among schools in the State of Maryland.

Nine teams recorded scores of 100 percent in the report as Loyola achieved a 97 percent cumulative Graduation Success Rate (GSR) score for the 2005-2008 cohorts that make up this year's report. All 15 of the Greyhounds' included programs were above the national GSR of 83 percent.

Loyola's Federal Graduation Rate, a different calculation derived from reports by the U. S. Department of Education, was tied for ninth nationally.

The Greyhounds have been ranked in the top-25 nationally of the overall GSR in each of the report's 11 years; this year's 97 percent mark is the second-highest Loyola has scored behind only the 2003 cohort's 98 percent rate.

"Academic success is one of the hallmarks of Loyola student-athletes, and this report again reflects the dedication and hard work they have demonstrated in the classroom," said Jim Paquette, Loyola's assistant vice president and director of athletics. "The accomplishments highlight not only our student-athletes' devotion to earning their degrees, but it shows the Loyola community's great support. I would like to personally thank our Student-Athlete Support Services staff led by Colleen Campbell, the Loyola faculty and staff and our athletic administration and coaches for the critical role they play in our student-athletes success."

Loyola attained 100 percent scores for men's lacrosse, men's soccer, men's swimming and diving, men's tennis, men's track and field (cross country), women's basketball, women's rowing, women's soccer 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 GSR 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 over the federal version.

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.
