PISCATAWAY, N.J. (June 21, 2012) – For the third-straight year, the Rutgers women’s gymnastics program received a perfect score and a number one national ranking in Academic Progress Rate, according to the latest multi-year APR figures released by the NCAA on Tuesday.
The Scarlet Knights achieved a multi-year figure of 1,000, which represents a perfect score, for the third-straight year. Rutgers was one of 15 women’s gymnastics programs in the nation to receive a perfect score and one of just six women’s gymnastics programs with a perfect score each of the last three years.
Rutgers’ four-year APR score of 1,000 covered the academic years of 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester or quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention, and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
