Four CSU Teams Post Perfect Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Scores

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Four Cleveland State teams - men's basketball, women's golf, women's track and field and volleyball - posted perfect Graduation Success Rate (GSR) scores, according to data released by the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Wednesday.

The current GSR figures measures the graduation rates of NCAA Division I student-athletes who entered college in the 2008-09 academic year.

CSU's four teams with 100 GSR scores were tied for the second most in the Horizon League with Green Bay. Valparaiso was the only school with more as the Crusaders had seven.

The Graduation Success Rate for Division I college athletes has climbed to 86 percent – two points over last year and the highest rate ever.

"Student-athletes continue to make important gains in the classroom, and the NCAA and its member schools are thrilled with their success," said NCAA President Mark Emmert. "We also are proud of the role academic reforms have played in helping students earn their degrees. We will continue to support rules and policies that encourage students to progress toward graduation.
