Two Bruin squads - men's tennis and women's volleyball - had GSRs of 100 percent. Ten of UCLA's 20 sports programs (cross country, indoor track and outdoor track count as one program for each gender) had GSRs of 90 percent or higher, and 15 of the 20 sports were at 85 percent or higher. All 20 UCLA sports hold GSRs higher than the federal rate.
The GSR is the NCAA's more comprehensive calculation of student-athlete academic success and is based on student-athletes who entered college as freshmen in the 2001-02 through 2004-05 classes. It allows for the removal of those individuals who left UCLA in good academic standing prior to the completion of their athletic eligibility.
The NCAA's GSR includes transfer students and student-athletes who leave in good academic standing, unlike the federal rate, which does not count transfers. The GSR and federal rate calculations measure graduation over six years from initial college enrollment.
The GSR for female student-athletes is 92 percent, while the rate for male student-athletes is 75 percent.
