Ramblers Tie With Harvard for Top Mark in the Nation at 99%!



What an honor that Loyola University Chicago was one of only two NCAA Division I institutions to have a 99% Graduation Success Rate (GSR) according to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)! The 99% GSR tied with Harvard University for being highest in the country.


Nine of Loyola’s 11 programs recorded a perfect score of 100 in the latest GSR report. Women’s basketball, men’s and women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s cross country/track and field, women’s soccer and softball all scored 100.


How awesome is it that the Men’s volleyball team had a perfect score of 100 and also at the same time competitively won back-to-back NCAA championships in 2014 and 2015!



Developed to more accurately assess the academic success of student-athletes, the NCAA Graduation Success Rate takes into account transfers, unlike the federal graduation rate. The GSR also accounts for midyear enrollees and is calculated for every sport. Under the calculation, institutions are not penalized for outgoing students who leave in good academic standing. Outgoing transfers are included in the receiving institution’s GSR cohort.

The most recent Division I Graduation Success Rates are based on the four entering classes from 2006-09. The NCAA began compiling these figures with the entering freshman class of 1995.
