1 NCAA Division I Progress -Toward -Degree Waivers Quality-Point Analysis . Background Based on research used by the NCAA Division I Academic Consultants gathered through the NCAA Academic Performance Census, the NCAA Division I A cademics/Eligibility/C ompliance quality points as a way to guide staff and committee perceptions of a Cabinet endorsed -athlete 's academic record. student Based on a directive approved annually by t he NCAA Division I Academic Cabinet , quality , the s ize of waiver request, points are one of several factors, including mitigating circumstances and overall academic record ttee when evaluating a considered by the staff and subcommi -toward waiver request. progress -degree The analysis of quality points allows the staff and NCAA Division I Committee on Progress - -Degree W aiver Toward -athlete 's likelihood of graduation within five years s to project a student through research, rather than basing the decision on prior decisions of the Committee on Progress -Toward -Degree Waivers or the committee members ' perception of a student -athlete 's academic record. -Point Analysis ( ). How to Calculate the Quality QPA redits e arned times ( x ) cumulative grade -point a verage = t otal Total number of c . quality points Example: Julie earned 40 total credits with a 2.000 grade after attending the institution for -point average two academic years. Total number of credits earned = 40 . Grade -point average = 2.000. 40 x 2.000 = 80 quality points. How is the QPA Used ? The staff, after calculating the student -athlete' s quality points, will determine the student 's predicated probability of gradua tion by using the range charts on the subsequent -athlete pages :

Below are several hypothetical situations to help understand how to calculate quality points for a -athlete and to identify what the academic record of a student student -athlete would look like based on earned quality p oints. 1. -athlete A completed hi s or her first year of collegiate enrollment and has 16 credit Student hours with a 1.710 grade -point average : -athlete 's quality points, he or she has less than a 25 percent predicated Based on the student probability of graduating. Student -athlete A has 27.36 quality points (16 credit hours x 1.710 cumulative grade -point average = 27.36 quality points ).

Based on the student -athlete' s quality points, he or she has a 33 to 50 percent predic ated -athlete C has 159 quality points (53 probability of graduating. Student x 3.000 credit hours cum grade -point average = 159 quality points ). ulative What A bout Q uarter S chools ? The quality s (QPR) are based on semester hours so quarter hours must be converted -point range . Simply multiply the student -athlete into semester hours 's total number of quarter hours by the . The resulting number is then multiplied by 2/3. -point average cumulative grade Example: -time quarters with a 2.00 0 grade -point average Jean earned 36 quarter hours in three full . x 36 2.000 = 72 quality points. x 2/3 = 48 quality points 72 (This is the quality point to be compared to the QPR located in the charts .) Mid year Analysis . For those waivers in which the student -athlete has a deficiency at midyear (e.g., midyear six using the range QP R must be identified enrollee, missed term, -hour deficiency), a midyear charts . Example: Tasha has completed 30 credit hours in three full -time semesters with a 2.50 0 grade- point average . Based on the calculation, the QP R for midyear between years and has 75 quality points one and two, the student -athlete has a 33 to 50 percent chance of graduating from the certifying institution.

What A ransfers -year or a four- year transfer student, two QPAs should be calculated . The Generally, for a two Credits earned at the certifying institution first is an overall QPA for all institutions attended. and credits which transferred into the certifying institutio n are used in the calculation. Credits earned at the previous institution that did not transfer are not used. The second QPA is calculated credit hours earned subsequent to enrolling at the institution the student is for the currently attending. Using this approach, both the student -athlete 's overall progress and the progress at the current institution can be consider ed. Example:
