USciences in Top-10 of NCAA Division II Academic Success Rate for 13th Year in a Row

USciences in Top-10 of NCAA Division II Academic Success Rate for 13th Year in a Row

University of the Sciences is in the top-10 of the NCAA Division II Academic Success Rate (ASR) for the 13th year in a row, dating back to its first year on the report.

ASR measures graduation success for Division II schools, taking into account transfer students and removing students who left the institution in good academic standing. Given the partial-scholarship financial aid model of Division II, ASR includes student-athletes not receiving athletics scholarships.

This year's data measured student-athletes enrolled from 2009-10 to 2012-13.

The USciences Athletic Department posted an ASR of 95 percent for that cohort, which ranked tied for the 10th-highest in Division II.

It was also the second-highest amongst the 14 teams in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC), extending the Devils' streak in the top-two of the league to 13 years.

The Division II national four-year average ASR held steady at 73 percent.

University of the Sciences' ASR has been at least 94 percent in each of its 13 years on the report.

Five Devils teams – golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's cross country and women's tennis – had perfect ASR's of 100 percent.

Notably, men's tennis and women's cross country continued its streak of producing a prefect 100 percent in each of the years it has been on the report.

Softball (95 percent), baseball (91), men's basketball (89), men's cross country (88) and volleyball (86) were all above the national average in their respective sport.
