EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The NCAA has released the 2020 Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and Federal Graduation Reports and the University of Evansville athletic department finished with a remarkable GSR of 99%. This level meets the criteria established by the NCAA that will result in an increased level of revenue distribution for the Missouri Valley Conference and Purple Aces athletic program.
Beginning in Spring 2020, a portion of Division I revenue was distributed to member schools based on the academic achievement of student-athletes. The model allows schools with higher graduation rates and academic success to qualify for more funds.
