High graduation rate tops national average
Student-athletes have a 90 percent graduation rate, according to a 2019 NCAA report. That is two percentage points higher than the national average for all NCAA Division I institutions and up from ISU’s previous high of 88 percent.
Thirteen of 15 Redbird teams exceeded the national average in their sport, with nine teams at 100 percent: men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, gymnastics, women’s basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball.
The data tracks student-athletes from their entrance in fall 2009 through the 2012–2013 academic year.
