LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech Athletics registered its highest Graduation Success Rate in school history during the 2016-17 academic year according to data released Wednesday by the NCAA. This year's rate is based on the average of student-athletes who enrolled in 2007, 2008, 2009 and the most recent data of 2010 and also graduated within six years following their enrollment. Last year, Marshall recorded an 84 percent GSR (for those entering between 2006 and 2009), while the previous three years yielded rates of 74 percent. Student-athletes who graduated in May of 2016 realized a 95 percent career-placement rate.
