A pair of sports programs at Eastern Washington University have been awarded a flawless multiyear score in the 2022–2023 Academic Progress Rate (APR) published by the NCAA. In the current academic year, the men’s and women’s tennis teams at the Eagles both achieved a 1,000 multiyear score, as the NCAA revealed today.

The APR is the annual standard of academic achievement that is calculated for all NCAA Division I sports.

“Our student-athletes have done an outstanding job this year of focusing on their academics, and that can be seen in the APR report,” explains EWU senior Associate Athletic Director and Senior Women’s Administrator Catherine Walker. “As a department, we’ve prioritized guiding our student-athletes to graduate, and we continue to see success in that area. It is also a credit to our academic advisors and each coaching staff who have focused on our student-athletes academic success.”

Women’s tennis set a new benchmark for the Eagles, recording a perfect APR score for the ninth time in program history and sixth year in a row. The men’s tennis team achieved a flawless score for the second year in a row.

All 14 of Eastern’s programs achieved a score higher than the required 930, keeping them in good standing to compete in the NCAA.

Over the course of 2004–05, EWU sports have now received 40 scores out of 1,000. Following a one-year break owing to COVID-19, the public release of the APR ratings resumed in 2022 with the release of the 2020–21 report.

About the APR

Though the notion of a more modern and precise way to gauge a team’s academic performance emerged in the early 2000s as part of a larger reform initiative, it was not until the 2004 NCAA Convention that one of the NCAA’s most iconic acronyms was formally adopted.

The Academic Progress Rate, or APR, is a team-based metric that takes into consideration each student-athlete’s eligibility and retention for each academic term and holds institutions responsible for the academic progress of their student-athletes.
