UChicago Academic All-Americans

The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) began the Academic All-American program in 1952 as an effort to honor elite student-athletes who excel in both competition and the classroom.

Since 1976, UChicago student-athletes have been honored 37 times with Academic All-American status.

To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. No student-athlete is eligible until he/she has completed one full calendar year at their current institution and has reached sophomore athletic eligibility.
