The University of Miami athletic program, which features eight men’s and 10 women’s teams, will not face any penalties when it comes to Academic Progress Rates.

Statistics released Tuesday by the NCAA showed two UM teams — women’s golf and women’s cross-country — received a perfect score of 1,000, and no sport registered a score lower than 945, well above the 900 cut used as a threshold for teams to face possible sanctions.

Five other UM teams scored 980 or better: women’s volleyball (995), baseball (983), men’s basketball (990), men’s tennis (993) and women’s swimming and diving (989).

The football team scored 977.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship.

The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.

The multiyear score is calculated by using a four-year rolling average.

Other Hurricanes team scores by sport included: men’s cross-country (967), men’s diving (950), men’s indoor track (963), men’s outdoor track (967), women’s basketball (960), women’s rowing (964), women’s soccer (979), women’s tennis (948), women’s indoor track (977) and women’s outdoor track (977).
