Georgia Tech women's cross country, golf, men's tennis, women's track & field and volleyball all earned the honor for the four-year period ending in 2016-17. The nine recognitions for women's golf is a program record.

The NCAA has recognized a total of 77 Penn State teams with a Public Recognition Award since the program's inception in 2006.

Women's Tennis became the seventh Razorback program to earn distinction from the NCAA as part of the APR Public Recognition Awards.

The University of Arkansas has earned a public recognition award in 12 of the 13 years since the program was initiated.

The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport.

Penn State, No. 2 in the 2018 final Winter Learfield Directors' Cup standings, has one of the nation's most comprehensive and successful athletic programs, featuring 800 student-athletes across 31 varsity programs (16 men's, 15 women's). This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is meant to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. One point is for being academically eligible at the end of a semester, and the other is for returning to school or graduating at the start of the next semester. Penn State ranks No. 4 among all Division I schools with 200 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans all-time, including Emily Ogle (women's soccer) and Haleigh Washington (women's volleyball) during the 2017 fall semester.

The school said in a press release on Wednesday that five of its teams had ideal scores over the most recent four years that were used in the calculation.
