APR for non-AQ schools

May, 24, 2011
The NCAA released its full academic progress rates today, and six non-AQ schools are faced with losing scholarships for poor academic performance.

ULM lost seven scholarships, while UTEP and Akron each lost four; FAU lost three and Idaho lost one. FIU also lost one after failing to meet conditions that would have waived the reduction.

Each Division I team calculates its APR each academic year, based on the eligibility and retention of each scholarship student-athlete. Teams scoring below certain thresholds can face penalties, including scholarship losses and restrictions on practice and competition. Rates are based on the past four years’ performance.

The NCAA announced last week that 14 schools had been honored with Public Recognition Awards for being in the top 10 percent of their sports with their APR scores. Air Force, Boise State, Middle Tennessee, Navy, Northern Illinois and Rice were the non-AQ schools recognized.

Here is a complete list of the non-AQ conferences and how their schools did. I have listed the schools based on the conference they played in for 2009-10.
