Welcome to the Academic Progress Reports, better known as the APR, for 2009, taking a look at the classes from 2003-2004 to 2007-2008. Every Division I sports team calculates its APR each academic year, based on the eligibility, retention and graduation of each scholarship student-athlete.

Teams that score below 925 (this is the Mendoza line ... if you can't hit this, you're just not trying) on their four-year rate and have a student leave school academically ineligible can lose up to 10 percent of their scholarships through immediate penalties. Teams can also face historically based penalties for poor academic performance over time. (http://cfn.scout.com/2/863514.html)
