College athletes are graduating at an all-time high, according to the NCAA's newest report. 

     The data shows 82 percent of athletes who entered school in the fall of 2006 earned a diploma within six years. That's up one percentage point from last year, tying the record high.

     The four-year graduation rate covering freshmen classes from 2003 through 2006 also increased by one percentage point to 81 percent.


The University of North Dakota graduates its student-athletes at a significantly higher rate than the national average, according to data released today by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

 UND’s student-athletes also graduate at a significantly higher rate than that of the remainder of UND’s student population, which was 53 percent.
