It's official: All FAMU teams are eligible for postseason

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- When the 2017-18 academic year begins, and for the first time in years, all of FAMU's athletic programs will be eligible for postseason play.

The NCAA on Wednesday released Academic Progress Rate reports for all schools -- and the penalties various schools will face for low scores. No FAMU program is listed as ineligible for the postseason. It's the first time since the 2013-14 academic year all of FAMU's teams are postseason-eligible.

APR scores, provided and tracked by the NCAA, take eligibility and retention rates into account and provide team-based scores.

Multiyear scores are an average of APR scores over four years.

Typically, teams need multiyear scores of 930 or higher to be eligible for postseason play, however, teams that show improvement over previous years can apply for waivers.
