The women's basketball, women's cross country and women's golf programs all earned National Recognition awards for having a perfect 1,000 multi-year rate. 

Twelve of Ohio's 16 teams achieved a perfect 1,000 single-year APR rate, including baseball, men's cross country, men's golf, wrestling, women's basketball, women's cross country, field hockey, women's golf, softball, soccer, swimming & diving and volleyball.

"This is an outstanding achievement by our student athletes in producing very high APR scores which measures eligibility and retention," said Ohio Director of Athletics Jim Schaus. "We want to continue to be a leader nationally in academic excellence. Thanks to the student-athletes, staff and coaches for their valuable contribution to this recognition. "

The APR is a real-time measure of eligibility, retention and graduation of student-athletes competing on every NCAA Division I athletics team. The most recent scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years.

The goal of academic reform is improvement, not punishment. Not only does academic reform ensure accountability for student-athletes, teams and institutions, but it also provides fairness by considering individual circumstances per team and school.
