University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Athletics set a school record for its Graduation Success Rate (GSR) according to the NCAA’s annual report. The report measures graduation rates of student-athletes who began enrollment during the 2012-13 academic year and graduated within six years.

UH student-athletes posted a four-year GSR of 88 percent, which topped last year’s previous best score of 85. The score matches the Division I national average, ranking UH third highest among schools in the Big West Conference behind Long Beach State and UC Davis (89).
