From UCLA:

Today, the NCAA released Academic Progress Rates (APR) for all sports teams at Division I colleges and universities. The latest averages cover the four-year period from 2006-07 through 2009-10.

Each of UCLA’S 24 sports had four-year APR averages above the 925 score the NCAA uses as a threshold for penalties. In fact, 18 of UCLA’s 24 sports (75%) had four-year averages of 970 or higher. Twenty-two sports had scores of at least 950 with a 23rd at 948.

“Our student-athletes work extremely hard to be just as successful in the classroom as they are on the field of competition,” said UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero. “The data released by the NCAA is a tribute to the determination of those student-athletes. The data also speaks volumes about all of our outstanding academic support personnel and our coaches, who continuously stress the importance of taking advantage of the educational opportunities at UCLA.”

An APR score of 925 is the minimum level of academic success; teams scoring below 925 can lose scholarships and face other sanctions over time, including bans on postseason play.

Since the inception of the APR system, UCLA has never suffered a loss of scholarship in any sport due to a low APR average.

Here are UCLA’s four-year APR averages by sport:
Baseball – 979 (national average 959)
Football – 956 (national average 946)
Men’s Basketball – 948 (national average 945)
Men’s Cross Country – 989
Men’s Golf – 930
Men’s Soccer – 972
Men’s Tennis – 985
Men’s Track, Indoor – 968
Men’s Track, Outdoor – 956
Men’s Volleyball – 972
Men’s Water Polo – 970
Softball – 993
Women’s Basketball – 973
Women’s Cross Country – 977
Women’s Golf – 1000 (Top 10 percent nationally in sport)
Women’s Gymnastics – 973
Women’s Rowing – 979
Women’s Soccer – 957
Women’s Swimming – 984
Women’s Tennis – 979
Women’s Track, Indoor – 982

    Those X-Country boys need to stop following the girls around and pay attention to their schoolwork. They’re dragging the school down1


    Whoever said ” that boy is a running fool” clearly wasn’t talking about a BRUIN! lol

    I’m surprised the women’s X-Country team scored so low; cross country runners typically have the highest GPA of all athletes at most schools. Even though the APR isn’t a measure of GPA but academic eligibility, you’d think the higher the GPA, the more likely you’ll be to remain academically eligible.

    USC just had their appeal completely denied by the NCAA. Now we need to win enough games to get the recruits they will lose.

    X-Country isn’t the problem. The men’s golf team needs to follow the women’s golf team’s example. A score of 930 is not so great compared to the other teams.

    Would love to know UNLV’s rating when Tark was there.


    It looks like the woman’s golf team needs to start tutoring the boys.

    I hope the NCAA takes into account the individual academic institution and not just overall GPA. The level of difficulty and competition at a UCLA is much different than say Boise State. It’s not an apples to apples comparison.
