NCAA Releases APR
May 10, 2017

BOISE, Idaho -- On the heels of four Boise State Athletics programs being recognized with Public Recognition Awards this past week, the NCAA released the remainder of the Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores, Wednesday.

Men's and women's golf, swimming & diving and women's tennis each posted perfect multi-year scores of 1,000 in 2015-16, all marks that tie for first nationally within their respective programs and garnered last week's national recognition.

Eight programs recorded perfect single-year scores of 1,000 for 2015-16 - women's basketball, men's cross country, men's golf, women's golf, gymnastics, swimming & diving, women's tennis and men's track & field.

Additionally, six programs matched or set team records for multi-year APR - men's golf (1,000), women's golf (1,000), gymnastics (995), swimming & diving (1,000), women's tennis (1,000) and wrestling (982).

The Broncos' football team recorded a multi-year score of 979, a score that ranked second in the Mountain West and tied for 27th nationally amongst FBS schools.

"Throughout the recruiting process our coaches identify student-athletes that want to succeed both in their respective sports and in the classroom," Director of Athletics Curt Apsey said. "Once they arrive on campus the entire Boise State community, including our academic staff here in athletics, does a phenomenal job of helping these young men and women take advantage of the opportunities provided to them.

"I am proud of our student-athletes for what they accomplish year in and year out, and I'm thankful for the people that help them reach their goals at Boise State."

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.

For the second time in as many years, the men's basketball team's multi-year APR increased by 10 points, this year to 971. In the last three years the program's APR has increased by 40 points.
