Vandy, LSU lead SEC in graduation rate

NEW: Follow on facebook -

The latest graduation success rate (GSR) scores were released by NCAA yesterday, and Vanderbilt and LSU led the SEC.

Here’s a little snippet about the GSR:

The GSR includes transfer students and student-athletes who leave in good academic standing, unlike the federal graduation rate, which does not include transfers. The GSR measures graduation over a six-year period from initial enrollment. These latest figures are a four-year average for freshmen who entered school between fall 2002 and fall 2005.

Here’s the GSR numbers for the SEC:

Vanderbilt – 85%

LSU – 77%

Alabama – 75%

Florida – 75%

Missouri – 73%

Georgia – 69%

Texas A&M – 69%

Kentucky – 65%

Auburn – 64%

Mississippi State – 60%

Ole Miss – 59%

Tennessee – 58%

Arkansas – 55%

South Carolina – 55%
