This report presents summaries of data collected from Division I, II, and III National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) member institutions. Tables are provided to offer meaningful summaries of the graduation-rates and enrollment data that Division I, II, and III institutions have provided to the NCAA and the federal government. The information offers comparisons between students and student athletes and between gender and racial groups. It also includes an overall look at the different sport categories included in the reports. The reports are divided into categories that are groups of similar institutions. The categories are based on NCAA subdivision, size of institution, and whether the institution is public or private. The categories reflect differences in institutional size and missions and place institutions with similar philosophies together. Data included in the tables are sums of all data collected from institutions in a given category. The report provides information about two groups of students: all undergraduates who were enrolled in a full-time program of studies for a degree and student athletes who received athletics aid from the institution upon initial enrollment. Data are provided in seven racial or ethnic groups. Three measures of graduation rates are provided: freshman-cohort rate, transfer-cohort rate, and exhausted-eligibility rate. (SM)
