90 Gamecocks on SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll

Feb. 8, 2017

COLUMBIA, S.C. – A total of 90 South Carolina students made the 2016 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll, as commissioner Greg Sankey released this year’s list on Wednesday.

A total of 1,029 students earned a spot, with those students competing in the sports of cross country, football, soccer and volleyball. The list is based on grades from the 2016 spring, summer and fall terms.

Arkansas led the way with 91, with the Gamecocks standing second with their 90. Kentucky came in third with 85.

Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution’s NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll. The following criteria will be followed: (1) A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. (2) If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. (3) Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letter winner), and non-scholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. (4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.
