ASU Continues To Excel In APR PDF Print

As it has throughout the eight-year history of the NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR), Appalachian State University athletics excelled in the latest APR data, which was released by the NCAA on Tuesday. In the latest four-year cohort (beginning with the 2008-09 academic year and ending with 2011-12), 14 of Appalachian State’s 20 varsity programs — baseball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s indoor track and field, women’s indoor track and field, men’s outdoor track and field, women’s outdoor track and field, men’s soccer, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and wrestling — recorded multiyear APR scores that matched or exceeded the national average for their respective sports. Two more — softball and volleyball — scored within two points of their sports’ national averages.
None of Appalachian’s 20 varsity programs incurred penalties for low APR performance. Penalties for subpar APR scores can include limitation of practice time, reduction of scholarships and banishment from postseason competition. Each of Appalachian’s 20 squads were comfortably above the current threshold of a 900 four-year APR average (out of 1000) that teams must achieve to be eligible for postseason play.
For programs in jeopardy of potentially incurring penalties in the future, Appalachian State athletics and the University’s office of academic services for student-athletes has already developed and put in place an APR improvement plan that addresses issues related to under-performance and works towards raising the academic profile of the program.
