According to the most recent NCAA APR report released in April, 16 JSU sports teams met or exceeded NCAA standards.
For the fourth straight year JSU had no teams placed in the NCAA penalty structure and all Tigers teams are eligible for post-season play. To compete in the 2016-17 postseason, teams must achieve either a 930 multi-year APR score or an average of 940 over the most recent two years.
