BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (July 23, 2021)-----A total of 236 Southeastern Conference track and field student-athletes were named All-Academic Athletes in Division I Track & Field, according to an announcement by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Each of the SEC's 27 men's and women's track and field programs were represented on the list of All-Academic athletes.

To be eligible for the honor, student-athletes must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale, including the most recent grading period, certifiable by either NCAA Faculty Rep or NCAA Compliance Coordinator or Registrar's Office. Institutions utilizing a different GPA scale must convert the GPA to a 4.0 scale using the standard conversion method [GPA/Scale x 4.0]. Individuals also must have completed at least two (2) semesters or three (3) quarters at the nominating institution. A set of athletic criteria is also in place.
