LEWISBURG, Pa. – According to federal data released by the NCAA Tuesday, Oct. 30, Bucknell’s student-athlete graduation rate for individuals entering school in 2000-01 ranks 10th among all Division I institutions, while its four-class average for student-athletes entering between 1997-98 and 2000-01 ranks fourth nationally.

Bucknell has annually ranked among the national leaders in graduation rates, and this latest round of results was no different. With a four-class average rate of 90 percent, Bucknell was one of only five Division I institutions to hit the 90-percent mark, joining Davidson (91), Georgetown (91), Duke (91) and Stanford (90).

Bucknell’s 90-percent student-athlete rate was also slightly higher than the total student-body average of 89 percent.

Bucknell’s graduation rate for just the class that entered in 2000-01 was 87 percent. Davidson was No. 1 in that listing at 98 percent, followed by Stanford (95), Georgetown (91), Colgate (90), Duke (90), Holy Cross (90), Notre Dame (90), Southern Methodist (90) and Fairfield (88).
