JACKSON, Miss. – The NCAA released its Academic Progress Rates (APR) Wednesday afternoon and the Jackson State Division of Athletics continues to excel academically.

In order to compete in the 2014-15 postseason, teams must achieve either a 930-multi-year APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years. For the third consecutive year no JSU program received an APR penalty and all 18 JSU teams will be eligible for postseason play during the 2014-15 academic year.

The JSU men’s tennis and the women’s cross country teams recently received public recognition from the NCAA for recording perfect single year scores, as well as ranking in the top 10 nationally in regards to APR (click here for story).

JSU’s other single year APR scores are as follows: baseball (967), men’s basketball (939), men’s cross country (1,000), football (957), men’s golf (1,000), men’s indoor track (950), men’s outdoor track (950), women’s basketball (963), women’s bowling (1,000), women’ golf (1,000), women’s soccer (946), softball (967), women’s tennis (957), women’s indoor track (1,0000, women’s outdoor track (1,000) and volleyball (978).

The Academic Progress Rate (APR) is a measure of classroom performance related to all participating NCAA Division I athletic programs. It is a four-year average based on each school’s overall student-athlete eligibility, retention and graduation rates and is considered to be the NCAA’s “real-time” snapshot of academic progress.
