The NCAA's Academic Progress Rate scores were released on the NCAA's website Tuesday, June 11, and every Auburn team is considered to be in good academic standing.
The scores are based on the standard set for the 2011-2012 season.
The closet team to sanctions was the men's basketball team who posted a score of 940. Though 940 was the lowest score posted by an Auburn sports team, the minimum score a basketball team can post and still be eligible for postseason play is 930.
The Auburn football team's score was 950, and the baseball team came in at 943.
The women's basketball team scored a 990, but the women's soccer teams recorded the highest score with a 995.
The Academic Progress Rate was set in place so student athletes would be held to a standard that emphasized a heightened concentration on academics.
As the rules are relatively new, there has been a designated adjustment period so teams can have a better chance of playing in the postseason while still improving on their schoolwork.
Under the new rules for 2012-2013, a team will be banned from postseason play if it does not have a 900 four-year average or 930 two-year average.
For 2013-2014 season teams must have a 930 four-year average or a 940 two-year average, and for 2015-2016 teams are required to have a 930 average.
None of Auburn's teams are in any immediate danger of being sanctioned by the NCAA.
"These APR results are a reflection of the efforts of our student-athletes to excel academically in their chosen academic majors at Auburn University. We are proud of their academic performance," said Gary Waters, senior associate athletics director for Academic Services. "In relation to the multi-year APR scores, all 21 Auburn teams comfortably met the NCAA standard for postseason competition. With that being said, we still have some work to do. We had a very good year during the 2011-2012 academic year. We need to follow that performance with three more good years."
