Six Oregon Programs Achieve Perfect Graduation Success Rate


EUGENE, Ore. – Six different University of Oregon athletics programs achieved a perfect Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 100 percent by student-athletes who enrolled at the UO between 2013-16 and received athletics aid.
 
The overall GSR for Oregon Athletics is 85 percent, up from 84 percent a year ago and the 13th consecutive year in which the department’s GSR has been 80 percent or higher. For all UO student-athletes who exhausted their eligibility, their GSR was 89 percent, up from 88 percent a year ago.
 
The six UO individual programs achieving a 100% GSR include women’s tennis, men’s tennis, soccer, women’s basketball, women’s golf, and acrobatics and tumbling. Both tennis programs posted a 100% GSR for the seventh consecutive year, while women’s golf did so for the sixth consecutive year and acrobatics and tumbling for the fourth consecutive year. The recent cohort also marks the second consecutive 100% GSR for both the Ducks’ women’s basketball and soccer programs.
 
A total of 11 UO programs posted a GSR of 80 or above, including football (80%), women’s cross country/track and field (81%), lacrosse (96%), softball (85%), and volleyball (85%) as well as the six that reached the 100% GSR threshold.
 
“The top priority within Oregon Athletics remains a steadfast commitment to high academic achievement by our student-athletes, culminating with graduation,” said Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens. “Our student-athletes consistently excel academically, a testament to their dedication as well as the efforts of the Jaqua Center academic support and student-athlete development staff in supporting our student-athletes toward achieving their goals.”
