The CACC released its inaugural All-Academic team in the fall of 2004 and a new group of student-athletes is honored each fall, winter and spring. To be eligible for the CACC All-Academic team, each student-athlete must meet the following criteria:
- Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 at the end of immediate preceding term (may include summer for fall sport participants)
- Minimum of two semesters enrolled as full-time student at member institution
- Student-athlete must be second year student-athlete at member institution
- Student-athlete must have been athletically eligible the season preceding the award and used a season of eligibility.
Beginning in the 2016-17 season, the CACC will release its All-Academic Teams by sport within 7-10 days following the conclusion of each championship.
Faculty Athletics Representatives at each institution collect academic records for student-athletes at the end of each sport season and term and report the results to the Conference Office.
