UCLA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR)

Here is a release from UCLA regarding its APR.

The NCAA has released the latest edition of its Academic Progress Rates and UCLA continues to perform well. The APR report, which is based on the eligibility, retention and graduation of scholarship student-athletes, is now based on four years of data (2003-04 through 2006-07).
An APR of 925 projects to an NCAA Graduation Success Rate of approximately 60 percent. Schools that fall below the 925 mark in a sport are subject to immediate and/or historical penalties which include loss of scholarships.
All of UCLA’s 24 sports have a four-year APR above the 925 cutoff. Twenty-one of the programs have APRs over 950.
Eighteen of UCLA’s 24 programs ranked in the top 50 percent of their respective sports. Softball ranked in the top 10 percent.
Twenty of UCLA’s 24 programs had a higher APR than the average of all Division I public institutions (a 21st was tied) in their respective sports.
