The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams.
The Cowboys were recognized for having a multiyear APR score in the top 10 percent of their sport nationally, marking the second-straight year and the ninth year overall that the men’s golf team has received the honor.
OSU was one of only three Big 12 men’s golf programs to earn the distinction this year, joining Iowa State and West Virginia.
APR scores for all Division I teams will be released May 23. The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester on academic term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in every sport. All teams must meet an academic threshold of 930 to qualify for the postseason and can face penalties for low academic performance.
The most recent APRs are multiyear rates based on scores from 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.
