Graduation Success Rate Data

Below the statement released on Monmouth website about the Graduation Success Rate Data:

"The NCAA released the annual Graduation Success Rate Data on Wednesday afternoon and the Monmouth University Athletics Department achieved a score of 90 or higher for the third time in the last four years. Overall, Monmouth's GSR score of 93 is based on the four entering classes from 2013-16.

Ten of Monmouth's programs led or tied for the lead of their respective conferences with perfect scores; men's and women's basketball, men's and women's golf, women's soccer, women's lacrosse, softball, bowling, and men's and women's tennis. 

The Division I Board of Directors created the GSR in response to Division I college and university presidents who wanted data that more accurately reflected the mobility of college students than the federal graduation rate. The federal rate counts any student who leaves a school as an academic failure, no matter whether he or she enrolls at another school. Also, the federal rate does not recognize students who enter school as transfer students.

The GSR formula removes from the rate student-athletes who leave school while academically eligible and includes student-athletes who transfer to a school after initially enrolling elsewhere. This calculation is a complete and accurate look at student-athlete success."
