Two Providence College Athletic Programs Earn NCAA APR Public Recognition Awards

May 16, 2018

PROVIDENCE, R.I.Two Providence College athletic teams garnered NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) Public Recognition Awards today (May 16).

For the fifth-straight year, the women’s swimming and diving team earned the honor, while the women’s tennis team was recognized for the fourth-consecutive season. The Friars have now had multiple teams honored in all 13 years that the NCAA has given out the Public Recognition Awards.

The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.

APR scores for all Division I teams will be released May 23. The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or academic term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in every sport. All teams must meet an academic threshold of 930 to qualify for the postseason and can face penalties for continued low academic performance.
