CORAL GABLES – In what is becoming an annual upward trend, student-athletes at the University of Miami continue to excel in the classroom at a record pace.
The NCAA announced the Graduation Success Rates (GSR) for all member institutions on Wednesday and Miami established a new athletics department-wide record with a GSR of 86 percent.
Last year, the athletics department-wide GSR was 82 percent and the previous high was set at 83 percent in 2007.

“We are extremely proud of our student-athletes and their record-producing commitment to academic success,” commented UM Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt.
“The praise must be spread out to every team within our athletics department. This is a joint effort to achieve at the highest level and leave this University with a degree. Our Academic staff of tutors, advisors, mentors and leaders has laid the foundation for success. The young adults in this department have truly seized the opportunity and created a first-class success story.”
The Athletics Department has exceeded the NCAA average for GSR in each of the last six years.
