Starting from the freshman class of 1995, the NCAA gathered GSR data, which started as a part of the NCAA's academic-reform initiative to measure success of Division I student athletes, according to the release.

"Loyola student-athletes represent some of the best and brightest in the nation", Donna Woodruff, the school's assistant vice president and director of athletics, said in a statement.

The GSR includes all scholarship athletes. It makes no accommodation for transfers into or out of an institution. The previous record GSR mark of 78 percent was recorded in 2016. "There are few better moments than when we see our student-athletes earn their degrees".

GW's baseball, women's basketball, women's cross country and track, gymnastics, men's rowing, women's soccer, men's and women's squash, women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis and women's water polo programs all achieved a ideal 100 Graduation Success Rate over a four year period. "On the other hand, the GSR, which adjusts for successful transfers and professionalization, shows that the student-athletes in the 2010-11 cohort graduated at a higher rate than the FGR of their colleagues". Five public universities - South Carolina, Missouri, LSU, Mississippi State and Alabama - graduated at least 90 percent of their athletes. The UConn score is also two points above the national Division I average.

Four of Baylor's sport programs earned a flawless GSR score of 100, including men's golf, women's golf, soccer and women's tennis. The football, baseball and men's basketball programs were all above the national average with baseball, men's swimming and diving, women's track, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's basketball and gymnastics all scoring 90 or above. The federal rate does neither. The rates are a four-year rolling average, so athletes who began in 2007 through 2010 are included in the current numbers. "They recruit with that in mind and structure their programs to foster high achievement in the classroom as well as in the arena".

Volleyball has posted a flawless GSR score 12 straight times, every year the program has been eligible to report while softball posted its fifth consecutive ideal score.

In all, 13 Ohio State programs have an FGR above 85 percent.
