INFORMATION ABOUT THE GRADUATION RATES REPORT

Introduction.

This information sheet and the NCAA Graduation Rates Report have been prepared by the NCAA, based on data provided by the institution in compliance with NCAA Bylaw 18.4.2.2.1 (admissions and graduation-rate disclosure) and the Federal Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act. The NCAA will distribute this sheet and the report to prospective student-athletes and parents.

The Graduation Rates Report provides information about two groups of students at the college or university identified at the top of the form: (1) all undergraduate students who were enrolled in a full-time program of studies for a degree and (2) student-athletes who received athletics aid from the college or university for any period of time during their entering year. [Note: Athletics aid is a grant, scholarship, tuition waiver or other assistance from a college or university that is awarded on the basis of a student's athletics ability.]

The report gives graduation information about students and student-athletes entering in 2008. This is the most recent graduating class for which the required six years of information is available. 

A graduation rate (percent) is based on a comparison of the number (N) of students who entered a college or university and the number of those who graduated within six years. For example, if 100 students entered and 60 graduated within six years, the graduation rate is 60 percent. It is important to note that graduation rates are affected by a number of factors: some students may work part-time and need more than six years to graduate, some may leave school for a year or two to work or travel, some may transfer to another college or university or some may be dismissed for academic deficiencies.

Graduation Rates Report.

1. NCAA Division II Academic Success Rate Data. The box at the top of the Graduation Rates Report provides freshman-cohort graduation rates for all students and for student-athletes who received athletics aid at this college or university. Additionally, this box provides Academic Success Rate (ASR) data for the population of student-athletes

a. All Students. This section provides the freshman-cohort graduation rates for all full-time, degree-seeking students. It shows the rate for men who entered as freshmen in 2008-09, and the four- class average, which includes those who entered as freshmen 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. The same rates are provided for women. The total for 2008-09 is the rate for men and women combined and the four-class average is for all students who entered in 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09.

b. Student-Athletes. This section provides the freshman-cohort graduation rates and also the ASR for student-athletes who received athletics aid. Information is provided for men and women separately and for all student-athletes.

Academic Success Rate.

For Division II institutions, the Academic Success Rate (ASR) adds transfer students, and second-term enrollees who received athletics aid in addition to those freshmen who did not receive athletics aid to the equation. Students from the entering cohort who are considered allowable exclusions (i.e., those who either die or become permanently disabled, those who leave the school to join the armed forces, foreign services or attend a church mission), as well as those who left the institution prior to graduation, had athletics eligibility remaining and would have been academically eligible to compete had they returned to that institution, are removed from the equation.
