Georgia releases Academic Progress Report

ATHENS - None of the University of Georgia's 21 varsity intercollegiate sports will incur any penalties resulting from the annual NCAA Academic Progress Report (APR) released Wednesday as a part of the Organization's continuing academic reform.

The APR is a point system based on scholarship athletes' eligibility and retention for a pre-determined time period. NCAA sports falling below the established point cutoff are subject to penalties including scholarship reductions.

Eighteen of Georgia's sports were above the 925 APR target score while three others (baseball and men's indoor and outdoor track) were within the "confidence boundary" and not subject to any penalties. The confidence boundary is a statistical adjustment made for sports with specific sample sizes.

Ten of Georgia's sports, including football and men's basketball, scored above the national average in several categories including all Division I institutions, all Division 1-A institutions, and all Division I public institutions.
