New Division III Athlete Grad Rates

April 14, 2014

Eighty-seven percent of Division III athletes who entered college in 2006 graduated within six years, according to Academic Success Rate data released Friday by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The ASR is an NCAA formula similar to Division I’s Graduation Success Rate -- it includes athletes who transfer into a college, but omits those who leave while academically eligible. Under the government’s Federal Graduation Rate, which does not include that ASR caveat, the percentage of graduates drops to 68. Submitting ASR data is also optional, and only 139 institutions participated in 2012-13.
