Cavalier Athletes Excel Academically

2016 championship women’s golf team

University of Virginia student-athletes enrolled between 2010 and 2013 have racked up the highest graduation-rate scores since the National Collegiate Athletic Association began issuing its annual Graduation Success Rate data.

Cavalier student-athletes graduated at a 95% rate, up one percentage point from last year’s report, a previous high for UVA athletics. The NCAA’s national average this year was 88%, reports UVA Today. Twenty of 21 Virginia athletic programs matched or exceeded the national average. A dozen recorded 100% graduation rates, including men’s basketball. See the NCAA report here.

The women’s golf team and women’s lacrosse team both had their 11th straight years of 100% graduation rates.

Kudos to the UVa athletic program. This is a track record of which the entire UVa community can be proud!
