The ASR is the percentage of student-athletes who graduate within six years of initial enrollment and includes virtually all Division II student-athletes, including transfers and those not receiving athletic scholarships.
An ASR of 90 or higher earns an institution the NCAA Presidents' Award, and only 26 out of 300 Division II colleges and universities received the honor in 2016. This year's ASR list can be viewed here.
