UCLA Teams Continue to Earn Excellent Academic Progress Rates

June 11, 2013

UCLA Athletics' academic success is well-reflected in the NCAA's latest Academic Progress Rates (APR), released today for all Division I sports teams for the period between the 2008-09 and 2011-12 academic years. Each UCLA sport had four-year APR scores above the 930 rate that the NCAA uses as a threshold for penalties, with 16 of the 24 (67%) averaging 970 or higher.

All 24 teams received rates of at least 950, and two teams - women's golf and men's water polo - had perfect marks of 1,000. In addition, 17 teams improved upon or equaled its APR from a year ago.

"We are fully aware that the strong academic environment at UCLA can pose a great challenge to even the best of students," said UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero. "This achievement is truly a testament to each of our student-athletes, as well as the staff members in our academic support services unit, who year after year have dedicated themselves to ensuring their success."

A total of 10 UCLA teams achieved a single-year APR of 1,000 for the 2011-12 school year - baseball, men's golf, men's volleyball, men's water polo, women's basketball, women's golf, gymnastics, softball, swimming & diving and women's tennis. Eight more teams were at 970 or higher, including football, which ranks second in the Pac-12 in both single-year rate (978) and multi-year rate (966).

A multi-year APR rate of 930 is the minimum level of academic success. Teams scoring below 930 are ineligible for postseason and subject to additional penalties determined by the NCAA. No UCLA team has ever had a rate lower than the required benchmark since the implementation of the NCAA APR.
