Kansas scores well in latest GSR data

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Nine Kansas programs registered at least an 80 percent graduation success rate, with two teams posting perfect scores, according to the latest data released by the NCAA on Wednesday. Jayhawk teams recorded a combined 83 percent GSR, just two percentage points off last year’s department-record-tying 85 percent. This data measures the graduation rates achieved by scholarship student-athletes who entered KU from 2007-10.
For the sixth year in a row, Kansas men’s basketball posted a perfect four-year GSR, meaning for a four-year average, all scholarship student-athletes either graduated or left the program in good academic standing.
The women’s golf team also achieved a perfect four-year GSR, marking that program’s fifth-straight year with a GSR of 100.
Along with men’s basketball and women’s golf, men’s golf (89), rowing (89), soccer (92), softball (87), swimming & diving (85), tennis (86) and volleyball (86) all achieved 80 percent GSR or higher.
The graduation success rate is based on a comparison of the number of scholarship student-athletes who enter a college or university and the number who graduate within six years. The GSR takes into account transfers and student-athletes who leave in good academic standing.
