Husker Graduation Rate Hits All-Time High

Nebraska student-athletes have posted a 93 percent Graduation Rate, continuing the Huskers’ long tradition of being a national leader in the classroom. The NCAA released its Graduation Success Rate scores on Wednesday, with Nebraska recording its highest all student-athlete rate for the seventh consecutive year.

In addition to the highest all student-athlete GSR in Nebraska history, 10 Husker teams achieved a perfect 100 percent GSR. Those teams included women’s basketball, women’s gymnastics, rifle, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, women’s tennis, volleyball, men’s gymnastics and men’s tennis.  The women’s basketball, women’s tennis and volleyball programs have registered a perfect GSR each of the 15 years the rate has been computed by the NCAA.

Nebraska leads the nation with 338 Academic All-Americans in school history across all sports.

At the end of the 2018-19 spring semester, Husker student-athletes had a 3.238 cumulative grade-point average. That represented the fourth straight year better than 3.200.

The GSR allows for a six-year window in which the student-athlete can earn his or her degree. Although the GSR includes student-athletes who transferred to Nebraska, it does not count student-athletes who transferred to another school and were academically eligible at the time of their transfer.
