Clemson Academic Report
Clemson, SC-Christopher Ip's men's and women's swimming programs both had over a 3.0 GPA for the first semester of the 2004-05 academic year to highlight the academic report for Clemson athletic teams. The team GPAs and academic honor roll students for the first semester were compiled by the Clemson University Office of Institutional Research and Planning.
Ip's women's program posted a department best 3.36 GPA for the first semester, the highest GPA for any team at Clemson and the 11th consecutive semester the team has had at least a 3.0 team GPA, the longest active streak of any team at Clemson. The men's program had a 3.04 figure, the fourth straight semester that team has had at least a 3.0 team GPA. The women's team had a record 27 student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll, while the men's had 16, the second highest one-semester total on record for that program.
Other programs with at least a 3.0 weighted GPA were women's soccer (3.27), women's tennis (3.07), volleyball (3.00) and rowing (3.00). It marked the ninth consecutive semester that Todd Bramble's women's soccer team had at least a 3.0 and the 12th semester in the last 13. That team also had 19 student-athletes named to the academic honor roll, second highest on record.
The Clemson baseball team established a semester record for team GPA (2.95) and student-athletes on the academic honor roll with 21.
Overall, 209 student-athletes had at least a 3.0 GPA, including 89 who were on the Dean's List and 36 who were on the President's List (4.0). There were 526 student-athletes in the study, so over 40 percent of Clemson student-athletes were on the academic honor roll.
Some of the student-athletes on the academic honor roll for the fall semester include All-ACC baseball player Kris Harvey, academic All-ACC football player Tommy Sharpe, and starting basketball guards Shawan Robinson and Cliff Hammonds. Prominent women athletes on the academic honor roll include track National Champion Gisele Oliveira, women's tennis All-American Julie Coin and women's soccer All-Regional selections Allison Graham and Paige Ledford.
It should be noted that this year's team grade point ratios are a weighted average (sum of hours attempted/semester grade points earned). In previous years dating to the 1980s, the team GPR report was generated by the unweighted method that took the sum of the student-athletes grade point averages, divided by the number of student-athletes in that sport.
The chart below is the grade point ratio for the fall semester only. The cumulative GPR of all 15 Clemson sports was over 2.15 entering the Spring semester.
