The Boise State Athletic department wrapped up the fall 2021 semester with an all-department grade-point average of 3.34. This is the highest fall-semester GPA on record and the second-highest semester GPA in school history.
Additionally, the Broncos’ cumulative department GPA, including all programs, improved to a school record of 3.38.
Women’s tennis led the way with a 3.91 GPA. They were one of four programs to establish a team record. Other teams with new records included beach volleyball (3.78), women’s basketball (3.69) and football (3.15).
The Broncos have combined to record a department GPA of at least a 3.0 over 20 consecutive semesters. The Broncos’ cumulative department GPA has been at or above a 3.0 for 29-consecutive semesters and at or above 3.30 for 10 straight semesters.
“I am beyond proud of another record-setting performance by our student-athletes in the classroom this past fall,” said athletic director Jeramiah Dickey.
83% of Boise State student-athletes achieved at least a 3.0 GPA for the semester and cumulative, while 66 student-athletes achieved a 4.0 GPA. The football team set a record of 74 student-athletes with a 3.0 or above and 14 student-athletes with a 4.0.
Not included in these statistics is the Boise State Spirit Squad, who made program history with a GPA of 3.51. Seven of these student-athletes recorded a 4.0.
“Accomplishments like these are a testament to the work they are putting in to take advantage of every opportunity they have while they are here,” Dickey said. “These accolades are also a direct result of the teams behind the teams, and I am grateful for our coaching staffs, our academic advisors, our campus community and everyone else that is making a positive impact on the student-athlete experience at Boise State.”
