UIU scored high in NCAA D-11 Academic Success Rate (ASR) data and also showed marked improvement in 2010. Per NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR), UIU student-athletes enrolled in the class of 2002 posted a six-year GSR of 96%, a 5% increase of the 2000 cohort and 2% increase over the 2001 cohort rate. The average D-II student-athlete GSR for the 2002 cohort posted 71%.
NCAA Division II’s latest Academic Success Rate (ASR) results show that graduation rates for Division II student-athletes continue to significantly exceed those of the general student body.
The NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and the Academic Success Rate (ASR) were developed in response to college and university presidents who wanted graduation data that more accurately reflect the mobility among college students today. Both rates improve on the federally mandated graduation rate by including students who were omitted from the federal calculation.
- The GSR measures graduation rates at Division I institutions and includes students transferring into the institutions. The GSR also allows institutions to subtract student-athletes who leave their institutions prior to graduation as long as they would have been academically eligible to compete had they remained.
- The ASR measures graduation rates at Division II institutions and is very similar to the GSR. The difference is that the ASR also includes those freshmen who were recruited to the institution but did not receive athletics financial aid.
