UMBC Volleyball Receives Academic Recognition from NCAA
BALTIMOREóThe UMBC volleyball team was recognized by the NCAA Wednesday afternoon with public recognition for its latest multiyear Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR). UMBC volleyball posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in NCAA Division I volleyball. The public recognition awards are part of the broad Division I academic reform effort.
The APR provides a real-time look at a teamís academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
Multiyear APR scores for the 6,484 Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition awards, will be announced Wednesday, May 6. The announcement also will include immediate and historical penalties for low-performing teams.
