For the 13th year in a row, SPU has been a winner of the NCAA Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence.

It is just one of eight schools in Division II sports to win the award all 13 years it has been presented.

The award recognizes a four-year academic success rate of 90 percent or higher.

Seattle Pacific’s ASR was 94%, which is two percentage points higher than last year. As defined by the award’s eligibility standards, 94% of all Falcon student-athletes in the latest measured cohort graduated within six years of initial enrollment.

“We are extremely proud of our recent student-athlete graduates, who continued a long legacy of receiving the Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence,” Athletic Director Dan Lepse said. “Those Falcons performed well in the competitive arena, but our ultimate goal for them is to graduate after getting a great education. They have done that at an impressive rate. Seattle Pacific student-athletes have excelled academically as well as any of their national peers over the last 13 years.”
