Hoosiers excel in NCAA APR

Indiana’s 24 athletic programs exceeded the NCAA’s minimum standards for Academic Progress Rate, and 15 sports earned a perfect APR score of 1,000.

The 2014 report released by the NCAA on Wednesday features a four-year compilation of APR data from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years. The APR uses a series of formulas related to student-athlete retention and eligibility to measure the academic performances of all participants who receive grants-in-aid on every team at every Division I college and university.

Teams must achieve either a 930 multi-year APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years to eligible to compete in 2014-15 postseason play.

Hoosiers men’s basketball, men’s cross country, men’s golf and women’s tennis earned perfect multiyear APR scores.

Indiana football had a score of 972, up from 963 a year ago. The baseball team fell from 982 to 974. The men’s basketball team, which has earned a perfect score four years in a row, was the only Big Ten team to earn one this year.
