In the most recent rankings, UNH athletics earned an NCAA Graduation Success Rate score of 96 percent — a mark matched only by Cornell among all land grant universities and significantly above the national average of 88 percent. Nine teams were ranked first in their sport, and seven — field hockey, women’s lacrosse, gymnastics, men’s skiing, women’s skiing, women’s soccer and swimming and diving — earned perfect scores, with 100 percent of their student-athletes earning diplomas within six years of matriculation.
“We never take for granted the fabulous effort our staff and student-athletes put into our academic mission,” says Marty Scarano, UNH director of athletics. “Academic achievement is the foundation of our success and we are tremendously proud. All due credit to our student-athletes!”
