Women’s basketball overall APR increases, Grambling State and Savannah State hit with penalties

Published on May 27, 2015


Infographic: How the APR is calculated

The NCAA released the 2013-14 Academic Progress Rate results on Wednesday. Each Division I sports team calculates its APR every academic year.

Each semester scholarship student-athletes earn one point for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating. A perfect APR is 1,000. In 2013-14, the overall four-year rate increased two points.

“More college athletes than ever are succeeding in the classroom, and I applaud their commitment to academic achievement. We are pleased and proud of their accomplishments,” NCAA president Emmert said. “Our goal always has been to encourage students to achieve academically and earn their degrees. Every year, Division I students prove that both academic and athletic success are achievable.”

The overall women’s basketball APR increased to 975 from 973 in 2012-13. In addition, 28 women’s basketball programs had a perfect APR including five Ivy Leagues as well as Stanford, Rice, Tulane, DePaul and Washington State.

Only two women’s basketball programs were hit with penalties: Grambling State (Level 1 penalty) and the 2015 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament champions, Savannah State (Level 2 penalty). Savannah State is ineligible for the postseason in 2015-16 due to its low APR (905).

NCAA explanation of penalties:

Level One penalties focus on practice restrictions, allowing teams to use that time to focus on academics. Teams facing this penalty lose four hours and one day of practice time per week in season, replaced with academic activities.

Level Two penalties include the Level One penalty and a reduction of four hours of practice time out of season replaced with academic activities. This level also includes the elimination of the nonchampionship season or spring football. Teams without nonchampionship seasons face a reduced number of contests.

Teams are subject to penalties if their multi-year APR falls below 930. They may request a waiver of some or all penalty elements. Waivers are overseen by the Committee on Academics. The NCAA’s penalty structure has three levels, with penalties increasing in severity at each level. Schools move through the penalty structure each year, progressing to the next level if their multi-year APR remains below the benchmarks.
