The University of Toledo received a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 92% for its athletic department, in the latest figures released by the NCAA. That figure ranks second among the 12 schools in the Mid-American Conference, trailing only Miami University’s score of 96%.

This is the third consecutive year that the Rockets achieved a GSR of 92%, and also the third consecutive year in which UToledo ranked second among MAC schools.

Five Rocket teams scored a perfect 100 GSR: men’s basketball, women’s basketball, women’s golf, women’s tennis and women’s volleyball.

“We take great pride that our latest GSR figures are showing that our student-athletes are graduating at a very high rate,” said University of Toledo Vice President and Athletic Director¬†Mike O’Brien.

“A total of 191¬†Rockets have graduated from The University of Toledo over the last three years. This is a tremendous achievement for our program, as well as for each graduating student-athlete and their family.”

GSR is a gauge of every team’s graduation rate within a six-year period of a student-athlete’s enrollment. The latest GSR figures examined the student-athlete cohort that originally enrolled in 2013 and would need to have graduated by August 2019 to count as a graduate.

The GSR formula, intended to be a complete and accurate look at student-athlete success, removes from the rate student-athletes who leave school while academically eligible and includes student-athletes who transfer to a school after initially enrolling elsewhere.

The GSR also allows for a deeper understanding of graduation success in individual sports than the federal metric, which has broader groupings.
