Tennis Teams Receive APR Recognition
May 3, 2017

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue men’s and women’s tennis teams have received the NCAA Public Recognition Award for posting a multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) among the top 10 percent of their sports.

The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams.

Women’s tennis received the award for the third consecutive year, while men’s tennis garnered its first such honor.

In addition, due to a change in the adjustment criteria for the retention point for student-athletes who transfer institutions, the volleyball team’s APR is in the process of being adjusted by the NCAA to 1,000. When it is, volleyball will be among the 93 teams that have earned Public Recognition Awards every year of the 12-year old program and an even more select group that has never lost an APR point.

The APR measures the eligibility, retention and graduation of student-athletes. The most-recent APR scores are multi-year rates - or a rolling four-year average - based on the scores from the 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years.

APR scores for all Division I teams will be released May 10.
