The NCAA has announced its annual Academic Progress Rates and Arizona State University received an average APR score of 982 for all sports. The score is the school's highest ever and ranks among the best in the Pac-12 Conference.

“Our APR scores represent the finest overall numbers we have reported since the APR rating was instituted by the NCAA in 2003-2004,” says Ray Anderson, vice president for University Athletics. “This is a direct result of the fantastic work being done by our Office of Student-Athlete Development, led by award-winning director Jean Boyd, and support from our faculty, staff and coaching staffs. The real stars here are the student-athletes themselves for their excellent work in the classroom.“

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation. It provides a clear picture of the current academic culture in each sport.
