COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina had 93 students garner 2016-17 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll accolades, as announced by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey on Wed.

A total of 902 students were named to the 2016-17 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll. The 2016-17 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2016 summer and fall terms as well as the 2017 spring semester for freshmen and transfers.

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.

The Gamecocks ranked second on the first-year listing, as Alabama landed 102 on the roll this academic year. Kentucky came in third with 91.

For the 2016-17 academic year, South Carolina led the SEC with 378 students making the listing, just ahead of Alabama (372) and Kentucky (339).
