NEW ORLEANS – The United States Athletic and Cross Country Coaches Association announced its academic awards for teams and individuals on July 13. For Ithaca, both teams were honored as the men’s program posted a 3.255 GPA and the women’s team finished the 2021-22 academic year with a 3.394. Individually, six members of the men’s team and 10 of the women’s team earned the distinction.

Below are the qualification criteria for individual and team recognition.

Minimum CUMULATIVE cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale during the most recent grading period. Institutions using a different GPA scale should convert the GPA to a 4.0 scale using the standard conversion method [GPA/Scale x 4.0]. The data must be certifiable by the institution’s registrar.

Graduate students should consider all undergraduate and graduate courses.

Meet one of the following sporting criteria:

 

  • Must have finished the indoor season among the top 50 individuals listed in descending order on TFRRS. In addition, all athletes who are not in the top 50, but who have participated in the Indoor or Outdoor National Championships, are eligible.
  • Must have competed as a member of one of the top 35 relay teams listed in descending order indoors on TFRRS. In addition, all athletes who are not part of the top 35 relay teams, but who competed in the relay at the Indoor or Outdoor National Championships, are eligible. Finally, any member of the relay team competing on a descending list expanded to include 35 establishments (1 relay team per establishment) is eligible.
  • Cumulative Team GPA (not 2021-22 academic year, not semester) of all student-athletes who have used an eligibility season must be at least 3.1 on a scale of 4, 0 in the most recent semester/quarter, calculated using the following method:
  • Total the cumulative number of semester or quarter-hour hours earned for all student-athletes who have used a qualifying season, including the most recent scoring period;
  • Total the cumulative number of grade points (GPA multiplied by the number of credit hours) earned by all student-athletes who have used a qualifying season, including the most recent ranking period;
  • Divide the cumulative number of quality points earned by the cumulative number of semesters or quarter-hours earned.
  • Institutions using a GPA scale other than 4.0 should then convert the GPA to a 4.0 scale using the standard conversion method [GPA/Scale x 4.0]. The data must be certifiable by the institution’s registrar.
  • Graduate students should consider all undergraduate and graduate courses.
