Georgia State’s Latest APR Scores Reflect Continued Academic Success

Georgia State’s Latest APR Scores Reflect Continued Academic Success

ATLANTA— Georgia State University Athletics Department posted some of its best Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores in history, as released by the NCAA today. 
Three Georgia State programs earned perfect multi-year scores of 1,000 in the latest NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) data released by the national office. 
While all teams far exceeded the minimum APR, beach volleyball, court volleyball and women’s cross country were among the three teams to earn perfect multi-year scores for the 2022-23 term. 

Additionally, a total of seven Georgia State teams earned perfect scores of 1,000 for the 2022-23 year. Teams include beach volleyball, court volleyball, men’s tennis, softball, women’s cross country, women’s tennis and women’s track & field. 
“I am incredibly proud of our student-athletes, who continue to excel academically and set the standard for academic success,” Senior Associate Athletics Director of Academics, Brad Horton said. “It takes the commitment, prioritization and collaboration of our students, coaches, academic support staff and our campus to achieve these goals and I am grateful to everyone for their unwavering commitment to our academic success. Setting the standard for academic excellence will continue to be a cornerstone of our athletic program.”
On the national level, NCAA Division I student-athletes continue to achieve classroom success at record-high levels, earning an overall multi-year Academic Progress Rate of 984. While remaining steady with last year’s APR, this year’s marking of the 20th anniversary of APR data collection reflects an overall rise in student-athlete academic success. 
Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one retention point for staying in school and one eligibility point for being academically eligible. The total points for the team are divided by the points possible and multiplied by 1,000 to create the APR score.

Every Division I sports team submits data to have its Academic Progress Rate calculated each academic year. The NCAA reports both single-year and four-year rates, on which penalties for poor academic performance are based. National aggregates are based on all teams with usable, member-provided data. 

This year’s report is based on NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) data submitted by the institution for the 2019 -20, 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years.
