All of the University of South Carolina’s countable intercollegiate sports posted a multi-year score of 950 or better once again, according to the Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics that were released today. Of the 18 measured sports, 14 sports recorded multi-year APR scores of 980 or better.
“Once again, our student-athletes have shown their commitment to academic success as indicated with the release of the annual NCAA APR scores,” said Athletics Director Ray Tanner. “I am proud of their successes in the classroom and how they represent themselves, their families, their teams and the University of South Carolina.”
Eleven sports scored a perfect single-year score (1000) for the 2020-21 campaign. Volleyball registered a perfect single-year score for the eighth-straight year. Football and Men’s Golf posted their highest multi-year score in over 10 years. Baseball led the pack in single-year improvements with a jump of 40 points from 951 in 2019-20 to 991 for the 2020-21 academic year.
The APR is a point system based on scholarship student-athletes’ eligibility and retention for a pre-determined four-year time period. NCAA sports falling below the established point Multi-Year cutoff (930) may be subject to penalties including scholarship reductions. For purposes of APR reporting, beginning with the 2014-2015 cohort, indoor & outdoor track & field teams are combined. The data released on Tuesday includes the scholarship student-athletes on rosters from the 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 academic years.
