LSU Places 55 on SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Fifty-five LSU student-athletes who were in their first year competing for the Tigers earned a spot on Thursdays Southeastern Conference First-Year Academic Honor Roll as announced by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.

LSU had 14 sports represented on the honor roll, led by swimming and diving who had 12 student-athletes earn a spot on the honor roll.

The First‐Year SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2021‐22 academic calendar.

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.
