2017 CFN Five-Year Program Analysis: APR Rankings By Conference


How good are the teams and programs in the classroom? As a part of the CFN Five-Year Program Analysis, the Academic Progress Rate (APR) is a factor, and here’s the ranking by conference


Contact @PeteFiutak

How good have the football programs been in the classroom? The Academic Progress Rate is a factor in the overall reputation of a school and how an athletic department is run, and it matters in the bowl picture, too.

Which teams did the best and worst jobs in each conference?

Taken from the NCAA, the APR is calculated as follows:

  • Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible.
  • A team’s total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate.
  • In addition to a team’s current-year APR, its rolling four-year APR is also used to determine accountability.
