Notre Dame Athletics | Oct. 24, 2013
The University of Notre Dame can once again claim the 2013 national championship for graduating its student-athletes in all sports--in the process posting the top NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figure (99) for its student-athletes for the seventh straight year.
The GSR number for all Notre Dame student-athletes rated the Irish first among the football-playing institutions in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A). The 2013 NCAA figures are based on entering classes from 2003 through 2006.
For the fifth year in a row Notre Dame leads the nation in four GSR categories--for all student-athletes (at 99), male student-athletes (98), female student-athletes (100) and black student-athletes (96).
