BOCA RATON, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University’s women’s golf team has been honored as one of 24 Conference USA teams that received the NCAA Public Recognition Award, based on the NCAA Division I 2012-13 Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores released on Wednesday, May 7. Women’s golf was also recognized with the award based on their 2011-12 APR score.
"The academic success of our student-athletes is a major priority and we are proud of the academic performance of these teams," C-USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky said. "Our expectation is the academic progress rates will continue to rise."
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester or quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention, and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. Below is a complete listing of Conference USA teams receiving the Public Recognition Award. For more information on the Academic Progress Rate, please log on to www.ncaa.org.
