Three UGA athletic teams recognized in NCAA Academic Progress Rate report

Three UGA varsity sports teams have been recognized publicly by the NCAA for outstanding achievement in the association’s annual Academic Progress Rate report.

The recognition honors teams that scored in the top 10 percent of all teams across the country in each sport. All three UGA teams scored a perfect 1,000: gymnastics, women’s swimming and diving and men’s golf.  

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
