NDSU Women's Golf Program Recognized by NCAA for Academic Progress
Release: June 14, 2012
INDIANAPOLIS - The North Dakota State women's golf program was publicly recognized for the third straight year by the NCAA on Thursday, June 14, for its commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes.
The announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and highlights 954 teams who achieved a multiyear Academic Progress Rating (APR) 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.
Multiyear APRs for all Division I sports teams, including teams receiving public recognition, will be announced by the NCAA on Wednesday, June 20.
Seven other Summit League institutions had teams publicly
recognized: IUPUI men's tennis; IPFW men's golf and women's volleyball; Oakland women's basketball and women's golf; Oral Roberts women's cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field; South Dakota State men's basketball, women's basketball, women's golf and women's tennis; UMKC women's volleyball; and Western Illinois women's tennis.
