APR is measured over a four-year period and this reported span was from the 2018-19 academic year to the 2021-22 academic year. The average score Division I programs is 984, and ASU has achieved a score of 990 or higher since Ray Anderson became the athletics director in 2014. Nine Sun Devil teams earned a perfect multiyear APR score today.

A press release from the school detailed APR further: “APR tracks the academic progress of each student-athlete, including eligibility, retention, and graduation in the calculation, and provides a clear picture of the current academic culture for each sport as well as department-wide. In 2014, the NCAA Board of Directors implemented a cut score of 930, below which teams will be penalized with loss of postseason competition.”

This is a telling achievement for ASU’s athletic department in the development of its student-athletes.
