On the women’s side, the basketball, field hockey, soccer, tennis, swimming and diving teams garnered a score of 1000. The men’s golf, tennis and wrestling teams achieved the feat.

The Academic Performance Rate monitors academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete on scholarship, every semester. The score accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation, providing a key measure of each team’s academic strength.

The scores continue a pattern of academic prowess at Drexel, where the men’s tennis, women’s tennis and women’s swimming and diving teams received perfect scores over multiple years. In addition, 14 of Drexel’s 15 NCAA-sponsored teams are above the four-year national average, including both men’s and women’s basketball.

In July, the Colonial Athletic Association announced that Drexel was one of just two schools where four teams earned Team Academic Excellence Awards for the 2021–22 season. The award recognizes institutions with the highest collective grade point average in the 22 sports the association sponsors.

The Dragons received the honors in men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s tennis and men’s swimming and diving.

Eight varsity athletic teams at Drexel received a perfect score on the Academic Performance Rate announced by the NCAA in June 2022. This marked an uptick from each of the previous two years.
