Press Release from University of Louisville S.I.D. Kenny Klein:
Success in academics for the University of Louisville student-athletes continues at a high level, reflected in recent national graduation rates released by the NCAA.
U of L student-athletes achieved an 81 percent graduation rate in the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Report, which was developed 10 years ago to account for transfers into the university who graduate and those who leave in good academic standing. The Cardinals’ GSR, most recently reported for freshmen who entered in the 2006-07 academic year, has risen 15 percent since the reporting began nine years ago. Six sports — women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, women’s soccer, softball, men’s swimming, and men’s tennis — attained a 100 percent GSR in the most recent report.
