  • The Academic Progress Rate is a metric of points earned by student-athletes for retention and eligibility. Student-athletes that leave school academically ineligible receive a score of 0/2. This study sought to identify common characteristics of the 0/2 student-athletes of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Six ACC schools participated in the study, providing data on 190 student-athletes that were identified as 0/2 over the past four years. A general profile of an 0/2 student-athlete is a Black male, leaving during the 4th or 5th year of enrollment, having exhausted athletic eligibility, who was academically eligible the term prior to the 0/2 term. The most important finding of the study was that the greatest majority of student-athletes fail out of school in their last semester of eligibility.
