APR
• When is it due?
•
Six weeks after the start of classes with APR
data.
• What is involved?
•
Roll over data from one year to the next.
•
Add new transfers and freshmen.
•
Collect transcripts for all members of the cohort.
•
Reference certification reports.
•
Don’t forget medicals and exhausted eligibility
SAs.
APR
• Points awarded for eligibility/graduation and
retention.
• Totaled over most recent four years (cohort).
• Used in analysis for eligibility for postseason
competition, APP penalties and public recognition
of top academically performing teams.
APR Calculations
APR
APR Calculation:
• Two available points each academic term.
• Eligibility point = SA meets academic eligibility standards as
of the end of the academic term.
• Retention point = SA is enrolled full time as of the fifth week
of classes of the next term.
Number of points earned
Number of points possible x 1000 = APR
Access to Postseason
Competition
Access to Postseason Competition
The NCAA Division I Board of Directors established a
930 multiyear APR benchmark for access to postseason
competition:
• Postseason includes all events conducted after last regular
season contest or end of conference tournament (e.g., bowl
games, NIT, WNIT, etc.).
• Conferences determine ability to compete in conference
tournaments.
• Applies to individual competitors on teams not meeting
standards.
• Waiver opportunities available.
Postseason Benchmarks
• For postseason competition in 2015-16 and
beyond:
• Need a multiyear APR of at least 930 OR, if subject
to postseason restriction a second time, have a twoyear average APR of 950 or higher in the two most
recent years.
Additional filters available based on resources
(e.g., bottom 15% as defined by NCAA Division I
Committee on Academic Performance).
*Handout available at back of the room.
APP Penalties
930 Benchmark
• Institutions must have a multiyear APR of 930 to
avoid penalties.
• APP penalties are separate from eligibility for
postseason competition.
Level One
Level One:
• Reduction by four hours/one day of practice per week
in season.
• Results in 16 hours per week rather than 20 hours and five
days per week rather than six days.
• Must be replaced by academic activities.
Level Two
Level Two:
• Reduction by four hours/one day of practice per week out of
season.
• Results in four hours per week rather than eight hours and five days per
week rather than six days.
• Must be replaced by academic activities.
• Cancellation of nonchampionship season or spring football.
• For sports without nonchampionship season, 10% reduction in
contests and length of season.
• And Level-One Penalty.
Level Three - Menu of Penalties
• Level-Three Penalties include:
• Level-One and Level-Two Penalties.
• Menu options may include:
•
•
•

•
Financial aid penalties (any amount, any type).
Practice penalties (reduction of four hours/week and up).
Contest reductions (10% up to full season).
Restricted and corresponding membership.
Coach-specific penalties, including game restrictions, recruiting
restrictions.

issues.
APR Improvement Plan Requirements
• Required for all teams under 930 multiyear APR.
