The NCAA annually releases a list of teams subject to penalties. The list is available by institution, sport and penalty, as well as a list of teams who will take a penalty because they failed to meet the conditions of a penalty waiver granted in an earlier year and must now take that penalty.
Division I teams that do not earn an Academic Progress Rate above specific benchmarks face penalties ranging from scholarship reductions to more severe sanctions.
Teams that score below 925 and have at least one student-athlete who both failed academically and left school can lose scholarships (up to 10 percent of their scholarships each year) under the immediate-penalty structure.
Teams with Academic Progress Rates below 900 face additional sanctions, increasing in severity for each consecutive year the team fails to meet the standard.
