According to the latest Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figures released by the NCAA, SIUE ranks second among Ohio Valley Conference members in student-athlete graduation success. Eight SIUE programs earned a perfect score of 100 percent in the latest GSR report, which assesses student success of Division I student-athletes who graduate within a six-year period of first attending an institution. These programs include men’s tennis, men’s track and field, women’s basketball, women’s golf, softball, women’s soccer, women’s tennis, and volleyball. Overall, the GSR for the group of SIUE student-athletes in the 2004-2007 cohort is 87 percent, meaning SIUE student-athletes are graduating at a higher rate than their peers. This ranks SIUE in the top 25 Division I public institutions nationwide, and among the top third of all NCAA Division I schools.
