NCAA Division II Academic Success Rate Eric Hartung & Stephanie Quigg
Academic Success Rate (ASR) 2005 NCAA Convention Proposal No. 10 Supplemental graduation rate. Accounts for all student-athletes who were on an official squad list and participating as of the first date of competition in the championship segment in any sport. Scholarship and nonscholarship (i.e., walk-ons). Transfers. January enrollees. Effective Date: August 1, 2005.
ASR Reporting required on an annual basis. Results will be released in conjunction with the current graduation rates report.
Incentive Program Approved by the NCAA Division II Management Council July 2005. $50,000 annual line item for institutions that report data on the ASR from spring 2006 through spring 2010. Funds NOT available for the spring 2006 reporting year. Funds distributed equally amongst the institutions that submit accurate and complete ASR data for all sports in a timely manner each year. Example: If all 282 active Division II institutions submit data, the amount received each year per institution would be $177.
Timeline Proposal No. 10 adopted at convention January 10, 2005. Division II Management Council approved an incentive program for institutions that submit data for the ASR in spring 2006 through spring 2010 at its July 2005 meeting. NCAA Division II Graduation Rates Data Collection System and Academic Tracking System (ATS) unveiled at the 2006 NCAA Convention.
Timeline (cont.) Education initiative by the NCAA Division II Academic Requirements Committee and NCAA staff early spring 2006. Institutions required to begin reporting beginning spring 2006 (i.e., 1999-2000 cohort). Delayed effective date of the penalty until spring 2011.
The Acronyms IPEDS-GRS: Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System – Graduation Rates Survey (Federal Graduation Rates). ASR: Academic Success Rate (NCAA). ATS: Academic Tracking System (NCAA).
Two Cohorts IPEDS-GRS: Students who enrolled full time for the first time in the first term of the requested academic year and received an athletics grant-in-aid. ASR: All students listed on an official squad list on the first day of the championship season who enrolled full time for the first time during the requested academic year. Includes scholarship, nonscholarship, transfers and January enrollees.
Cohort Placement of Transfers Enter the number of students transferring INTO your institution who are listed on the squad list for the selected sport and were placed into the entering freshman class based on the number of credits accepted by your institution and your institution’s standards for class placement. These student-athletes can enter your institution at any time during the academic year.
Cohort Placement of Multisport Athletes Federal hierarchy maintained for five Federal sport groups: football, basketball, baseball, cross country/track and other. With no established hierarchy in place for the remaining sport groups collected in the ASR, the institution will choose ONE SPORT GROUP ONLY for each multisport student-athlete. Division II allows for grant-in-aid awards in multiple sports. (NCAA Division II Bylaw 126.96.36.199)
Calculating IPEDS-GRS OutcomeScore Graduated within six years of entering.1/1 Did not graduate within six years of entering but continued at institution. 0/1 Separated from institution within six years of entering without graduating. 0/1 Allowable exclusion.0/0
Calculating ASR OutcomeScore Graduated within six years of entering.1/1 Did not graduate within six years of entering but continued at institution. 0/1 Allowable exclusion.0/0 Separated from institution before six years of entering and not academically eligible if returned. 0/1 Separated from institution before six years of entering and academically eligible if returned. 0/0 Separated from institution after exhausting eligibility to compete regardless of academic eligibility status. 0/1

Two Systems Graduation Rates Data Collection System. Mechanism to meet the legislated requirement to submit IPEDS-GRS and ASR data to the NCAA. Division II ATS. Provides the ability to track graduation rates cohorts (IPEDS-GRS and ASR).
What does the ATS DO? Allows for the tracking of outcomes for graduation rates cohorts. 2004-05 entering student-athletes comprise the first cohort that can be tracked by the ATS. Importation of relevant data from CAi. Exporting of data to the Graduation Rates Data Collection System to meet the 2011 reporting requirements.
What does the ATS NOT DO? Cannot be used to submit graduation rates data to the NCAA – no “submit” button. Cannot track past cohorts (1999-2000 to 2003-04). These cohorts must still be reported via the Graduation Rates Data Collection System.
