OSU Football Fails To Meet APR Standard

Posted: Updated:

The NCAA released its Academic Progress Rate (APR) data today and the Oklahoma State football program has an average score of 929.41 over the past four years and an average score of 943.54 over the past two years. The APR is a team-based metric that accounts for the eligibility and retention of each student-athlete, each term.

Teams must earn a 940 two-year average or a 930 four-year average to participate in the postseason. While OSU’s two-year average makes it eligible for postseason play, its four-year average makes it subject to a restriction of practice time.

“We are taking steps to ensure that our APR numbers improve moving forward,” Athletic Director Mike Holder said. “We are accountable for what we do and ultimately, we are here to serve our student-athletes and do our best to keep them on track to be lifelong contributors to society.”

The OSU football team posted scores of 916 in 2009-10, 915 in 2010-11, 953 in 2011-12 and 934 in 2012-13.

“We have shown significant improvement over the last two years and we were able to demonstrate that we’ve taken strategies to address the areas where we were losing points. That’s why we received partial relief from the standard penalty.” said Kevin Fite, OSU Senior Associate Athletic Director for Compliance.

When the APR is calculated next year, the 916 from 2009-10 – one of OSU’s lowest scores in the current four-year cycle - will not be included.
