The University of Miami, one of the nation’s finest institutions of higher education, shows an unparalleled dedication to academics. While Miami’s athletic successes are well documented; the University’s commitment to academics is second to none. Hurricane athletes have a wealth of resources and programs available to them as they work towards earning their degrees. UM’s Academic Services/Life Skills Department, along with a wide-range of campus resources, has established a unique academic support program that serves to enhance the life of the student-athlete.
A staff of 11 professionals provide direction for UM’s student-athletes in academic advising in conjunction with advisors in the respective Dean’s offices, study table monitoring, career planning, eligibility, life skills and a host of other advice oriented services.
UM placed a school-record 237 student-athletes on the ACC Honor Roll. Every team posted at least a 3.0 grade point average in the spring semester. Our football team’s spring semester and cumulative GPAs set a team record. Nine of our programs were recognized for perfect single-year scores of 1,000 in the latest NCAA Academic Progress Report. And five programs — men’s and women’s cross country, golf, and men’s and women’s tennis teams — earned Public Recognition Awards for teams finishing in the top 10 percent of their respective sports based on the most recent multi-year APR.
