Oklahoma football earned Graduation Success Rate lower than 50 percent from 2002-2005
The latest Graduation Success Rate figures were released today by the NCAA and USA Today examined them.
Of teams currently ranked in the Top 25, Oklahoma football ranked No. 25 in graduation success rate.
“The Graduation Success Rate (GSR) measures graduation over a six-year period,” USA Today wrote. “The figures released today are for students who entered college in 2005. Unlike the Federal graduation rate, the GSR takes into account transfer students and students who leave school while in good academic standing.”
Between 2002 and 2005, the Oklahoma Sooners had a 47 percent graduation success rate (GSR).
The top program during those years was Notre Dame.
From USA TODAY:
Notre Dame, ranked No. 5 in the coaches poll, ranks No. 1 in graduation rates; 97 percent of its football players who entered school from 2002-05 graduated. Meanwhile, No. 7 Oklahoma, which will host the Fighting Irish on Saturday in a showdown with BCS hopes at stake, ranked No. 25 in graduation rates, at 47 percent.
