  • in 2003, the ncaa introduced the academic progress rate (apr), which tracks academic eligibility and continuing enrollment for student–athletes with athletic scholarships. a higher apr means that, on a semester–by­–semester basis, fewer student–athletes have dropped out or been declared academically ineligible. the ncaa imposes penalties on colleges if they fail to meet the proscribed minimum apr, including loss of scholarships, loss of practice time, and being declared ineligible for post-season play. though the apr penalties were highly controversial, the result was that ncaa football and basketball apr scores increased by 30 points per team during the 2004–05 and 2013–14 seasons. during the 2006–07 season, roughly 15 percent of ncaa football and basketball teams were penalized for scores that fell below the apr threshold. recently, the apr penalties were dealt to less than 5 percent of the ncaa football and basketball teams. bls.gov
