HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac Athletics has once-again excelled in the eyes of the NCAA with an 81% overall Graduate Success Rate (GSR).
The NCAA releases an annual GSR conference ranking of overall and individual sports. The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, of which Quinnipiac is a member beginning in 2013-14, was ranked third in all sports among Division I conferences.
In addition to Quinnipiac’s overall numbers, women’s basketball head coach Tricia Fabbri and field hockey head coach Becca Main lead two Bobcat teams with perfect (100%) graduate success rates through the 2012-13 season.
The graduation success rate (GSR) is a freshman-cohort rate which indicates the percentage of freshmen who entered during a given academic year and graduated within six years. Added to the freshman are those students who entered midyear, as well as student-athletes who transferred into an institution. In addition, the GSR subtracts students from the entering cohort who are considered allowable exclusions, as well asthose who would have been academically eligible to compete had they returned to the institution.
