A student-athlete must have earned a 3.30 GPA in each of the two semesters of a given year to be eligible. This is an increase from a 3.0 GPA which had been the minimum requirement. Any student-athlete participating at any Conference institution is eligible thus the participant does not have to compete in a Conference-sponsored sport. Additionally, beginning with this academic year, any student-athlete earning a 3.9 GPA or above earned the All-Academic honor "With Distinction".
