Division I student-athletes continue to graduate at high rates, according to the latest Graduation Success Rate data (PDF) announced Tuesday. The overall single-year rate held steady at 90 percent, which continues to be the highest rate recorded. 

"Student-athletes continue to make impressive achievements in the classroom," said Dave Schnase, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs. "Student-athletes have demonstrated an incredible commitment to academic success while pursuing their sport at the Division I level. Member schools should be proud for creating meaningful, enriching and educational experiences that help our student-athletes graduate and set a course for long-term success."

Over the course of 20 years, significant gains have been demonstrated within the diverse student-athlete population — Black student-athlete graduation rates increasing by 25 points from 56% to 81%, Hispanic/Latinx student-athletes with a 24-point increase from 64% to 88%, Black FBS football student-athletes with a 27-point increase from 54% to 81%, and Black men's basketball student-athletes with an increase of 35 points from 46% to 81%.
