The fact that Texas can get a perfect score, while having no one on the team even sniff graduation is a farce. And Kansas actually came out and said that their APR won't drop for Shelby because he is finishing his coursework away from campus. That is absolute BS. I am sure Godfrey will hurt ours though. What a sham.

If KU ball players can complete course work without ever attending class while on campus, why would you think they can't when they leave Lawrence?
"There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
The APR is calculated by allocating points for eligibility and retention -- the two factors that research identifies as the best indicators of graduation. Each player on a given roster earns a maximum of two points per term, one for being academically eligible and one for staying with the institution. A team's APR is the total points of a team's roster at a given time divided by the total points possible. Since this results in a decimal number, the CAP decided to multiply it by 1,000 for ease of reference. Thus, a raw APR score of .925 translates into the 925 that will become the standard terminology.
It looks like it only has to do with players being academically eligible and remaining at the institution. So I guess transfers directly effect the rate instead of indirectly through not graduating.
