All-Time Academic All-Americans

College Sports Communicators Academic All-America Program:
The CSC Academic All-America Program is the marquee program of the College Sports Communicators. There are Academic All-America programs in the fall for men’s and women’s soccer, football and women's volleyball. In the winter, CoSIDA sponsors Academic All-America teams in men’s and women’s basketball and men's and women's swimming and diving. In the spring, it sponsors programs for baseball, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's cross country/track and field and softball. The At-Large category, which is selected in the spring inlcudes men's and women's golf, men's volleyball, men's and women's wrestling, and women's bowling.

While a number of individual sports sponsor an honor squad/ team, College Sports Communicators has trademarked the term “Academic All-American” and other programs are referred as “Scholar All-America” or other.
