Abstract: The purpose of this study was to reveal which services provided by the NC State University Academic Support Program for Student Athletes had a significant correlation with the student athletes' academic success. Student athletes' grade point averages were used as a measurement of academic success. Partial correlation and Somer's D statistical formulas uncovered which academic services had a significant relationship to the student athletes' academic success. Good communication between the academic coordinator and coach, the helpfulness of the tutorial program, the accessibility of laptops during team travel, the expectation that the student athletes attend study hall, the use of knowledgeable tutors, and the expectation of becoming a professional athlete all had a significant correlation to the student athletes' academic success. Further explanations of these items as well as recommendations for further research are discussed.
