CHICAGO – A total of 79 University of Chicago student-athletes were named to the 2018 University Athletic Association (UAA) Fall All-Academic Team on Tuesday.
The eight UAA institutions combined for 556 All-Academic honorees.
UChicago was represented on the list by the men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, and volleyball squads.
Within the UAA, All-Academic Recognition is awarded to student-athletes who have completed at least one full year of college study and carry a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.30. The 3.30 GPA is the same academic standard used as a qualifying threshold by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) for the nomination of Academic All-America candidates in all sports.
