The Jaspers also registered a perfect 100 GSR across a league-high 12 sports: baseball, golf, men's basketball, men's cross country/track and field, men's swimming and diving, softball, women's basketball, women's cross country/track and field, women's lacrosse, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving and volleyball.

The MAAC posted a GSR of 91 percent, which is two points higher than this year's national average of 89 percent, and ranks ninth among all Division I conferences. 

The report reflects the six-year graduation rates for college athletes who entered school in 2012. The four-class average includes those who entered as freshmen in 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13. The GSR formula removes from the rate student-athletes who leave school while academically eligible and includes student-athletes who transfer to a school after initially enrolling elsewhere.
