NCAA Releases APR Report

April 20, 2016 BOISE, Idaho – The Boise State Athletics Department combined for department records in both single-year (994) and multi-year (982) Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

In all, 13 of the Broncos’ programs recorded perfect single-year scores of 1,000 for 2014-15 – men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s golf, women’s golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming & diving, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field, women’s outdoor track & field and volleyball.

Additionally, nine programs recorded record multi-year APR scores, including women’s cross country (996), men’s golf (980), women’s golf (1,000), soccer (1,000), softball (991), swimming & diving (998), women’s tennis (1,000), women’s indoor track & field (982) and wrestling (980).

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation, providing a measure of each team’s academic performance.

“I am extremely proud of the student-athletes we have here at Boise State,” Director of Athletics Curt Apsey said. “The credit goes to our coaches for recruiting young men and women that want to be successful both in competition and in the classroom, and to our academic team and their efforts to keep our student-athletes on track for graduation.”

The Boise State football team ranked second in the Mountain West with a multi-year score of 982, up one point from 2013-14 and ranking tied for 15th nationally amongst schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Boise State’s women’s golf, swimming & diving and women’s tennis teams led the Mountain West in multi-year APR, while the volleyball team ranked second in the league (995) and the women’s cross country (996), softball (991) and men’s tennis (992) teams each ranked third.

At 961, the men’s basketball team’s multi-year score is up 10 points from last year’s release, and 20 points from two years ago.

The NCAA announced last week that the Broncos’ women’s golf and women’s tennis teams each earned Public Recognition Awards for having multi-year APR scores in the top-10 percent of their respective sports nationally.
