Q: How did SU's athletic teams fare in terms of the most recent Academic Progress Rates?

A: Quite well! Six Redhawk athletic teams received Public Recognition Awards from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for posting multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APR) in the top 10 percent of their respective sport. Seattle U was the only Western Athletic Conference school to receive more than one award. The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a picture of the academic performance for each sports team over four years.

  • Women's outdoor track and field-fourth year to receive the award
  • Men's indoor track and field and outdoor track and field-second year
  • Women's cross country, indoor track and field and rowing-first year
