LEWISBURG, Pa. – Continuing a long-standing tradition of success in the NCAA’s annual graduation rates survey, released Tuesday afternoon, Bucknell’s four-class average for student-athletes entering between 1998-99 and 2001-02 ranks in a tie for second nationally.

With a four-class average of 89 percent, Bucknell trails only Davidson (92 percent) among all Division I institutions reporting federal graduation rates (the Ivy League and military academies do not report federal graduation rates). Georgetown, Notre Dame and Holy Cross are also at 89 percent. 

Bucknell’s student-athlete graduation rate is identical to its overall student-body average of 89 percent.

Division I schools
Additionally, Bucknell’s graduation rate isolated to individuals entering school in 2001-02 ranks No. 12 among all Division I institutions. Bucknell’s 86-percent mark was just behind Dayton (94), Davidson (93), Holy Cross (93), Providence (91), Notre Dame (90), American (89), Northwestern (89), Boston College (88), Sacred Heart (88), DePaul (87) and Saint Joseph’s (87).
