Where does Nebraska football stand in the latest Academic Progress Rate?

·1 min read

After a one-year hiatus, the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate has been released. Implemented in 2003, the APR uses team-based metrics to follow the academic progress of student-athletes.

The APR is calculated as follows:

  • Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible.

  • A team’s total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate.

  • In addition to a team’s current-year APR, its rolling four-year APR is also used to determine accountability.

Teams must earn a four-year average APR of 930 to compete in championships. So who was thriving off the field and in the classroom? Scroll below and take a look at all 14 Big Ten football teams.
