June 24, 2010
FORT WORTH, Texas - While the TCU Athletics Department enjoyed tremendous success on the field of play during the 2010 spring semester, the highest marks of achievement came in the classroom as the Horned Frogs student-athletes notched a departmental cumulative grade point average of 2.98, which is the highest since reporting began in the Fall of 1998.
"The TCU student-athletes posted the highest cumulative grade point average in over 10 years during the most recent spring semester," said Chris Uchacz, TCU Director of Academic Services. "What is even more impressive is that 56 percent of our student-athletes recorded a 3.0 grade point average this past spring while 83 student-athletes graduated earning a TCU diploma. All of our student-athletes should be commended for their outstanding work on the field as well as in the classroom."
This past semester, 15 athletic programs recorded a team GPA of 3.0 or higher while 16 teams notched a collective GPA of 2.90 or higher where as only five teams notched at least a 3.0 GPA during the 2003 fall semester.
At the conclusion of the most recent spring semester, 20 Horned Frog student-athletes were recognized as recipients of the TCU Scholar Award, which highlights full-time student-athletes who earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average. In addition, 51 student-athletes were named to the 2010 Spring Dean's List by their respective colleges.
