INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The NCAA released its annual Academic Progress Rate (APR) Report on Wednesday, May 10, revealing that each of Green Bay's 16 athletic teams have earned a multi-year APR of 942 or better.

The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years. The Phoenix had 12 of 16 sports with a 980 or better while four teams (men's cross country, men's tennis, women's cross country, and women's nordic skiing) boasted a perfect grade of 1,000.
Four teams were close behind with multi-year scores of over 990, including women's swimming & diving (998), men's golf (993), women's soccer (992) and volleyball (990).
In addition to high levels of success in the multi-year APR, 12 of 16 sports received perfect scores of 1000 in the 2015-16 single-year APR, including men's basketball, men's cross country, men's nordic skiing, men's soccer, men's tennis, women's cross country, women's golf, women's nordic skiing, women's soccer, women's swimming & diving, women's tennis and women's volleyball.
Every Division I sports team calculates it's APR each academic year. Scholarship student-athletes each semester receive one point for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating. Teams scoring below certain thresholds can face consequences, including practice restrictions and playing season reductions. Rates are an average of the past four years' performance. National aggregates are based on all teams with usable data at the time of analysis.
In order to compete in the 2017-18 postseason, teams must achieve either a 930 multi-year APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years.
Three Phoenix programs, including men's cross country, men's tennis and women's cross country were recognized by the NCAA last week for earning the Public Recognition Award based on their most recent multi-year APR. These awards are given each year to teams with APRs in the top 10 percent in each sport.
