Graduation success of college athletes is becoming as popular
a phrase in the world of college sports as is the term Proposition
48. This phrase has derived from the inability of college
athletes to obtain a degree after their playing eligibilities have
ended. This study focused on several variables that help determine
or judge the graduating success of a student athlete. The particular
variables used were SAT scores, high school GPA, college GPA, and
A positive relation of 93% of all students, 77% relationship
for black student athletes, and 100% for non-blacks was found between
SAT, high school GPA, and college GPA graduating success. It should
be noted that other variables may affect the success or lack of
success of a student athlete; however, these lie beyond the scope
of this study.
