AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas athletic programs once again have their annual set of data to prove the Longhorns are advancing toward their ultimate goal – to graduate all student-athletes. UT surpassed the required NCAA standard in all 20 of its intercollegiate athletics sport programs, according to the multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) released on Wednesday.

 

“Academic excellence continues to be a hallmark of Texas Athletics programs, and we’re pleased to see the progress toward graduation all our student-athletes are making,” said Texas Men’s Athletics Director Steve Patterson.

 

Last week, seven University of Texas teams (baseball, men’s basketball, men’s tennis, women’s basketball, women’s cross country, women’s swimming and diving and volleyball) received public recognition awards for their latest APR. That total led all Big 12 Conference institutions and was tied for ninth nationally among all College Football Playoff universities.

 

Football’s rating of 958 is the team’s best multi-year mark since the NCAA began releasing the APR in 2004-05. It is 11 points higher than last year’s mark.

 

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete during the school year. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.

 

This APR is based on data submitted by the institution for the 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years.
