Marshall student-athletes who enrolled between 2007 and 2010 boasted a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 85 percent, one point higher than the Herd's numbers last October, according to figures released Wednesday by the NCAA.
The NCAA developed the Graduation Success Rate formula, or GSR, as part of its 2003 academic reform initiatives to better measure student-athlete academic success.
Penn State student-athletes achieved a record-tying academic performance as the student-athletes continue to graduate at rates higher than most schools around the country. The GSR provides information for student-athletes who received athletics aid for any period of time during their freshman year. The 10 teams that had ideal scores were men's basketball, men's track and cross country, men's golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's track and cross country, women's golf, soccer, women's tennis and volleyball.

Loyola had ideal GPRs for men's cross country, men's golf, men's soccer, men's swimming and diving, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's cross country and track and field, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's tennis and women's volleyball. It is the third consecutive mark of 82 overall or better for WKU. The Hokies' GSR ranked second among the public schools in the ACC behind Clemson's 91. It also marks the eighth straight year of either tying or setting a new mark. A GSR of 90 percent is four percentage points higher than the average of all other Division I programs. Villanova had eight women's programs and six men's programs earn a 100 percent GSR in the release.
On a statewide level, Virginia Tech's overall GSR of 90 was tied for second among all universities behind leader William & Mary. Unlike Federal Graduation Rate, which assesses only first-time, full-time freshmen, GSR also includes transfer students and mid-year enrollees in the sample.
