Millersville University’s student-athletes rank No. 1 of 16 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) members in Academic Success Rate (ASR) according to data recently released by the NCAA.
NCAA statistics show that among freshman entering classes from the years 2002-05, Millersville’s student-athletes produced an ASR of 86 percent, and Millersville was one of only four schools in the PSAC to top the 80 percent mark. Millersville’s women’s cross country, women’s track and field, field hockey and women’s tennis programs produced a 100 percent ASR.
ASR is calculated using a four-year rolling average, includes transfers into an institution in the calculation of the rate but removes students who left the institution while academically eligible to compete.
The PSAC average was 78 percent, ranking it fourth among 23 Division II conferences. With the highest enrollment, the PSAC produced the most graduates (5,422 of 6,966).
