The NCAA released its annual Academic Progress Rate report today.
The athletic department fared well on the report for the most part and did well in the major sports. Here are UNT’s four-year scores from the latest report:
|UNT APR scores for 2012-13|
UNT struggled with the new standards in football a few years ago, but has really righted the ship the last few years under Dan McCarney. UNT had the highest GPA among Conference USA teams during the fall semester.The benchmark teams are trying to hit to avoid penalties is 930.
One of the criticisms of the media business is that we only report bad news. To some degree that is true. If UNT went the way of UNLV, which is banned from the bowl season, it would be a huge story.
It’s important to point out when teams and programs do well off the field as well.
This is one of those instances.
