Virginia athletics makes the grade with new NCAA Academic Progress Rate report

All twenty-three varsity programs achieve APR well above NCAA minimum

The NCAA released Academic Progress Rate (APR) reports, and every varsity program at the University of Virginia was above the threshold minimum of 930. Fourteen programs had a perfect 1000 for the 2014-15 academic year, and six of those had perfect 1000 multi-year scores as well.

Virginia football recorded an APR of 975 for 2014-15, up from their multi-year mark of 974. The 2014-15 score put them in the 70th-80th percentile bracket nationwide, and nearly twenty points better than the national mark for public Division I institutions. The Hoos were 6th in the ACC for 2014-15, three spots ahead of Virginia Tech.

The men's basketball program registered a 2014-15 APR of 980, also an improvement on their multi-year score (979). Like football, the basketball score came in at the 70th-80th percentile bracket and twenty points better than D-I public institutions. Eight teams in the ACC were ahead of the Hoos, including Louisville and Clemson (perfect 1000 for each).

The Cavaliers' perfect 1000 men's programs for 2014-15 were cross-country, golf, soccer, tennis, and track and field. The women's programs to score perfect 1000s for 2014-15 were basketball, cross-country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, softball, swimming and diving, track and field, and volleyball. The programs with perfect multi-year 1000s were men's cross-country, men's tennis, women's cross-country, women's golf, softball, and volleyball.

The full report for the University can be found here. Sortable national data—which can be broken down by year, sport, institution, and conference—is available on the NCAA website.
