Arizona State's Annual Progress Rate--APR

The Annual Progress Rate, or APR, is a scholastic measurement used by the NCAA to determine academic success among member institutions.  For the 2009-10 year, Arizona State averaged an APR score of 974, which ranks them second in the Pac-10 behind Stanford.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation. It provides a clear picture of the current academic culture in each sport.

The APR awards points to student-athletes who meet academic eligibility standards (such as satisfactory progress, GPA and percentage of degree) and who remain with the institution (retention).

Two sports -- women's tennis (1,000) and women's swimming (997) -- have the top scores in the Pacific-10 Conference.

In fact, 10 of ASU's 21 sports finished in the top three in the Pacific-10 Conference while 14 of the 21 finished in the top five in the league. All 12 women's sports at ASU finished with scores above 970 and all sports (21) except four finished above a score of 950. 

ASU's men's basketball team posted a score of 972, which is No. 2 in the Pac-10 behind Washington. The No. 1 ranked and national No. 1 seeded Sun Devil baseball team ranks No. 3 in the Pac-10 with a score of 966.

For the second year in a row all 21 of ASU's athletic teams have exceeded minimum APR scores for the NCAA's most recent four-year reporting period. In fact, the average score for all of ASU's 21 athletic teams is 974, well above the 925 cut-off
point to avoid NCAA penalties and/or loss of scholarships. 17 of ASU's teams are above 953, or 95.3 percent.
