UT PRESS RELEASE
AUSTIN, Texas – The University of Texas Football program once again received its annual set of data to prove the Longhorns are advancing toward their ultimate goal – to graduate all student-athletes. The multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) was released on Wednesday afternoon.
Texas Football posted a multi-year mark of 978, it's highest score ever since the NCAA began releasing data in 2004-05. The Longhorns' score of 978 was also highest among Big 12 Conference football programs and marked a seven-point improvement from last season.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete during the school year. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance.
This APR is based on data submitted by the institution for the 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years.
