For the cross country team, it's the third straight year the program has been recognized. It's the second straight honor for the men's golf program.
The APR is a scorecard that tracks classroom performance of Division I sports teams, and it takes into account eligibility and retention of student-athletes over a four-year period. It measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport. Teams must meet a certain academic threshold to qualify for the postseason, and they also can face penalties for continued low academic performance. The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years.
Multi-year APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced on May 19. That announcement also will include APR penalties for low-performing teams, teams subject to postseason ineligibility and head coach APRs.
