OU's APR scores remain in good standing

The NCAA released its most recent Academic Progress Rate scores, which track academic progress, retention and timely graduation of every Division I athletic program, Tuesday afternoon. And OU remained in good standing.

Joe Castiglione provides the following example:

“A Division I Football Bowl Subdivision team awards the full complement of 85 grants-in-aid. If 80 student-athletes remain in school and academically eligible, three remain in school but are academically ineligible and two drop out academically ineligible, the team earns 163 of 170 possible points for that term. Divide 163 by 170 and multiply by 1,000 to determine that the team’s Academic Progress Rate for that term is 959.”

In addition to the strong APR scores, OU announced Tuesday that during the 2012-13 academic year, its student-athletes earned a cumulative GPA of 3.02, which is the highest one-year mark on record for OU athletes.

“Under the leadership of President David L. Boren, the University of Oklahoma has earned a well-deserved national reputation for academic excellence,” Castiglione said. “Our student-athletes, coaches and support staff have worked very hard to uphold that standard.”

Here are the APR scores for each of OU’s athletic programs:


1000 — Indoor track, outdoor track

995 — Gymnastics

992 — Tennis

991 — Volleyball

988 — Soccer

987 — Cross country, golf
