NCAA Releases Boston College APR Scores For 2010-11

On Wednesday, the NCAA released the Academic Progress Rates (APR) for all Division-I programs, and Boston College fared quite well. The scores released by the NCAA were for the 2010-11 academic season.

APR, you ask? APR.

Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one retention point for staying in school and one eligibility point for being academically eligible. A team's total points are divided by the points possible and then multiplied by one thousand to equal the team's Academic Progress Rate score. 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.

A total of nine Boston College programs received a perfect 1,000 in 2010-11, including men's golf, skiing, swimming and women's softball, ice hockey, lacrosse, swimming, indoor track and outdoor track. The nine teams with perfect scores are tied for the most by an ACC school (Duke also had nine).

The men's tennis and women's golf programs both posted double-digit gains YOY. Golf improved its APR score by 20 and women's golf by 18. A total of 23 of BC's 27 eligible varsity programs either remained constant or improved on its score YOY.

Men's basketball was of the program's that declined the most YOY, going from a multi-year score of 972 to 958. Only women's skiing dropped lower YOY, but they were starting from a perfect score of 1,000 so its a bit more understandable, no? Still, BC's hoops team is well above the NCAA minimum to avoid APR penalties and a possible postseason ban. Oh hai, UConn.

BC's complete APR scores from 2004-05 through 2010-11 by program after the jump.
