Jan. 24, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - South Carolina, for the seventh-consecutive fall, posted the most student-athletes on the Southeastern Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll, as the league released the list on Thursday.

The Gamecocks posted 74 student-athletes on the listing, based on grades from the 2012 spring, summer and fall terms, topping the list by a wide margin over second-place Georgia, who had 57. Vanderbilt had 55, while Florida and Kentucky both had 46. A total of 629 student-athletes earned the accolade for the fall.

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 should 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.
