The governing body released its annual report Thursday, and the numbers reflect scholarship athletes who enrolled from 2003-06.
Nationally, 81 percent of Division I scholarship athletes who enrolled during that four-year window graduated within six years. The norms for men’s basketball and Bowl Subdivision football were 70 percent; Championship Subdivision football was 68 percent.
Some general notes:
* Thirteen of the ACC’s 15 members exceeded the national overall rate of 81 percent. Florida State and Pittsburgh were the exceptions at 79 and 77, respectively.
* Virginia Tech was among 11 ACC men’s basketball programs above the national average. None of the other four power conferences — Big Ten, Pacific 12, Big 12 and Southeastern — had more than six. Virginia was among the four ACC programs below 70.
* Virginia and Virginia Tech were among nine ACC football programs above 70 percent. Duke and Boston College were among seven FBS teams above 90, joining Northwestern, Notre Dame, Stanford, Air Force and Boise State.
* Nine of William and Mary’s 19 sports reported perfect GSRs.
* Richmond led the Colonial Athletic Association’s 10 football programs at 91 percent.
