Find Graduation Rates For College Sports

Michigan or Syracuse?  Both are teams I follow and cheer for. But I’ve found out that Michigan has already beat the Orange. Not  in the NCAA tournament — but in the percentage of college basketball players who are graduated.

Take a look at the Final Four teams:

Michigan  58%

Syracuse  50%

Louisville  33%

Wichita  State  30%

The ranking is based on the NCAA’s graduation success rate (GSR) which takes into account students who transfer in and those who leave for the NBA, but are in good standing. It’s probably a little fairer comparison than the federal graduation rate (FGR) which looks solely at who comes in as a first-year student and whether s/he is graduated.

You can get these scores for your home teams in basketball as well as other sports and look at coaches and other data. Just click the link in the paragraph above.
