Success on the field and beyond
Athletic events and the numerous opportunities for student-athletes to compete in Division I sports are an important part of our vibrant campus experience. According to NCAA statistics, the graduation rate of SMU athletes is 78 percent, compared to the national Division I rate of about 58 percent. That's because our athletes are also scholars, and we provide them with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom, on the field and in their futures.
SMU competes in the American Athletic Conference.
