June 11, 2013
THE FLATS -- The Academic Progress Report (APR), released Tuesday afternoon by the NCAA, confirmed that Georgia Tech's APR scores have improved once again and are at a record high. For the 2011-12 school year, Yellow Jacket student-athletes collectively exceeded a score of 985, the highest score to date for Georgia Tech.
Highlights of the report include:
"It is very encouraging to see that our Academic Progress Rate scores continue to climb each year, and that our student-athletes are excelling in the classroom," Georgia Tech athletic director Mike Bobinski said. "Congratulations to all of our student-athletes, coaches and academic support personnel for their hard work and commitment to academic achievement."
The APR numbers released today are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic. Each Fall and Spring(+Summer) semester student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one retention point for staying in school and one eligibility point for being academically eligible. A team's total points are divided by the points possible and then multiplied by one thousand to equal the team's Academic Progress Rate score.
