Cougar football had a single-year score of 962. The NCAA's standard is set at 930.
Five of Washington State's intercollegiate athletic programs posted perfect single-year APR scores: women’s cross country, golf, tennis and track and field, and men’s golf.
The women’s rowing team posted a four-year score of 993. Other women’s programs include swimming (989), track and field (986), basketball (986), soccer (984), tennis (984), golf (982) and volleyball (973).
In all, eight of the nine women’s programs improved their four-year APR scores from last year. All six of WSU’s men’s programs improved their four-year APR scores from last year.
The APR is the NCAA's annual assessment of each team's academic and retention history. The overall APR score is based on the most recent four years of data (2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15). Every year thereafter, the most current year's data will be added and the oldest year of data will be removed, creating a four-year rolling rate.
“I continue to be extremely proud of our student-athletes, coaches and staff, for their commitment to academic excellence,” said WSU Director of Athletics Bill Moos in a statement. “Again this year, the NCAA APR data reflects that commitment.”
