ACC Graduation Rate Remains High

THEY MAY LOOK STUPID, BUT THEY'RE NOT...(Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
With 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist Tyran Mathieu and three other former LSU Tigers players being arrested on drug-related charges (10 lbs of pot), one might say more crime and lower graduation rates might improve ACC football...

That said, the ACC continues to excel in the area of graduation rates...

The NCAA released its latest round of Federal Graduation Rate and Graduation Success Rate measures Thursday, and the majority of ACC schools are above the national average.  

The FGR is produced by the university and measures what percent of students graduates within a six-year timeframe. This year's FGR figures concern the 2005-06 freshman class.

The GSR factors in athletes who transfer from a program -- and doesn't penalize the school if they do so in good academic standing -- as well as ones who transfer into the program. This year's GSR rates measure freshmen who entered school from 2002-03 to 2005-06.
