The NCAA released its annual Graduation Success Rate (GSR) data for incoming student-athletes from 2009-12 on Wednesday, and the scores for Canisius’ student-athletes are the highest since the NCAA began issuing the report in 1998. Golden Griffin student-athletes covered during the most recent report graduated at a 94 percent rate, up one percent from last year’s report, which was the previous high for the College’s athletic department.
Additionally, the NCAA’s national GSR average for this year’s reporting range is up to 89 percent.
The Graduation Success Rate measures graduation rates for student-athletes by team. The GSR considers student-athletes who are on scholarship their first year and who graduate from their respective universities or leave their programs, via transfer to other universities or for professional opportunities, while in good academic standing.
