Seven OSU Teams Post Perfect APR Scores

OSU set a school record for perfect APRs.



Records are set and broken all the time on courts and fields in Stillwater, but Oklahoma State’s student athletes are also setting records in the classroom.

OSU’s men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s cross-country, women’s cross-country, softball, and women’s track teams all scored 1,000 on the APR for the 2017-18 academic year. The APR (academic progress rate) is a team-based metric that holds schools accountable for the eligibility and retention of each student athlete.

Having seven teams with a perfect APR breaks OSU’s record of six from the 2016-17 academic year.

Sport 2017-18 Four-Year Score
Men’s Golf 1,000 1,000
Women’s Golf 1,000 992
Men’s Cross-Country 1,000 991
Women’s Track and Field 1,000 988
Women’s Cross-Country 1,000 987
Softball 1,000 986
Men’s Tennis 1,000 985
Soccer 990 990
Football 983 982
Men’s Track and Field 963 973
Wrestling 958 969
Women’s Basketball 952 957
Baseball 935 970
Women’s Tennis 929 975
Men’s Basketball 894 954

Since the APR was implemented for the 2003-04 academic year, OSU’s men’s golf team has scored a perfect 1,000 13 of the 14 years. The men’s golf team is OSU’s lone team with a perfect four-year score.

Four-year scores are important because teams’ four-year scores must be over 930 to participate in NCAA Championships, all of OSU’s four-year scores are over that number.

OSU’s football team’s four-year 982 ranks second in the Big 12 and is tied for 15th nationally.

The APR applies to scholarship athletes. Athletes get one point for staying in school and another for remaining academically eligible. Teams’ total points are divided by points possible then multiplied by 1,000 to get the final score. If you’re more of a visual learned, the NCAA made this handy chart:
