best GSR of any public NCAA FBS institution (third straight year)


ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – The Graduation Success Rate (GSR) for UCF student-athletes has increased from 93 to 94 percent.

UCF recently submitted its most recent GSR data to the NCAA, which will release nation-wide results later this year.

“We’re very proud of the academic culture in our athletics department,” UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics Dr. Daniel J. White said.

“Everyone involved in UCF Athletics – the student-athletes, coaches, academic staff and administration – is committed to graduation being the ultimate goal for our student-athletes.”

UCF’s 2016 score left the Knights with the best GSR of any public NCAA FBS institution for a third straight year.

“A 94 percent Graduation Success Rate tells me that our coaches are outstanding recruiters, who prioritize academics within their sport programs,” UCF Senior Associate Athletic Director for Academic Services Dr. Eric Wood said. “It also shows we have an academic support staff that is committed to putting our student-athletes in the best position to graduate.”

The GSR data in the 2017 report includes student-athletes who first enrolled in 2010. The NCAA Graduation Success Rate is designed to show the proportion of student-athletes who earn a college degree.
