Twenty of Holy Cross’ athletic teams have achieved a perfect 100 percent graduation rate, according to the Graduation Success Rate Report, which has been released by the NCAA. The data used to calculate the Graduation Success Rate is from the four-class aggregate of entering classes from 2003 through 2006, for which the NCAA has compiled sport-by-sport figures.
In addition, Holy Cross’ overall Graduation Success Rate for all student-athletes was 98 percent. This mark tied for the fourth best in the nation among all Division I institutions with Bucknell, Colgate, Davidson, Duke, Harvard, Lafayette and Yale, behind only Brown (99 percent), Dartmouth (99 percent) and Notre Dame (99 percent).
