45 Student-Athletes Participate in Cleveland State's Graduation Ceremonies

CLEVELAND -- A total of 45 Cleveland State University student-athletes participated in graduation ceremonies on Saturday as part of the University's commencement exercises.

Cleveland State University student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom, according to the most-recent data compiled by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. For the seventh time in the last nine years, all of Cleveland State University's aid-awarding athletic programs earned a multiyear Academic Progress Rate score above the NCAA minimum threshold. In fact, each of the Vikings 17 sports programs registered a multiyear APR score at least 18 points above the NCAA's required minimum of 930 during the current cohort.

Additionally, eight of Cleveland State's 17 aid-awarding athletics programs recorded a multiyear APR score above the NCAA Division I national average for those sports, and three programs — women's basketball, women's golf and cross country — registered perfect multiyear APR scores of 1,000. This is the 14th consecutive year that the cross country program has posted a perfect APR score, and the third straight year that women's basketball has accomplished the feat.

Cleveland State student-athletes have posted a cumulative departmental grade point average above 3.00 in 24 consecutive semesters.
