NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University had three athletic programs recognized among the top 10 percent of Academic Progress Rate scores within their respective sport, as baseball, men's basketball and women's lacrosse achieved superior APR marks announced today by the NCAA. This is baseball's first ever appearance in the top-10 percent, while men's basketball earned top-10 percent for the second-straight year and women's lacrosse for the third consecutive time. The latest APR data compiled the retention and eligibility rates for the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years. Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR). This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. Specifically, these teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport. The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. Additional information regarding the APR performance of all Division I members and individual teams will be released by the NCAA on May 23.
