The Boise State athletic department reported new records in single-year and multi-year Academic Progress Rate scores Wednesday.
For the most recent one-year mark (2014-15), the Broncos posted a 994, and for the multi-year score (2011-15), a 982. APR is calculated on a scale up to 1,000, defined by the NCAA as “each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible. A team’s total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate.”
Boise State’s football team had a single-year score of 991, and a multi-year score of 982. The multi-year score is tied for 15th among Football Bowl Subdivision schools, and up one point from last year, but the first since the 2008-09 report it hasn’t been in the top 10.
Thirteen Boise State teams posted a perfect 1,000 for the 2014-15 academic year: men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s golf, women’s golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming and diving, women’s tennis, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field, women’s indoor track and field, women’s outdoor track and field, and volleyball.

No FBS program is facing postseason ineligibility (a multi-year score under 930), though Idaho’s multi-year score of 904 is the lowest by 30 points. The Vandals had been handed a postseason ban in 2014, but it was lifted last year because of academic improvement. Their single-year score of 957 is up from 948 last year and 838 in 2012-13, and their multi-year score is up from 896.
