The Graduation Success Rate (GSR) is a NCAA measurement that improves on the federally mandated graduation-rate by including transfer data in the calculation. It was developed in response to college and university presidents who wanted graduation data that more accurately reflect the mobility among students in today's higher education climate.

 

The most recent Graduation Success Rates are based on the four entering freshmen classes in Division I from 1998-99 through 2001-02.
