2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Track & Field All-Academic Teams

NEW ORLEANS – The Scholar Team of the Year and All-Academic Teams for the 2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Track & Field seasons were announced on Thursday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Arkansas was named the NCAA Division I Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Scholar Team of the Year after winning the indoor crown and maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.42. Southern California was named the NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Scholar Team of the Year after winning the outdoor title and maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.3.

Each of the top-38 women’s programs from the 2021 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships and 51 of the top-52 women’s programs from the 2021 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships qualified for All-Academic distinction from the USTFCCCA.

American University had the best cumulative GPA out of any NCAA Division I Women’s Track & Field program at 3.8.

Here is the criteria to be named an All-Academic Team:

Division I Track & Field All-Academic Teams

  • The cumulative GPA (not 2020-21 academic year, not semester) for all student-athletes on the institution’s NCAA Squad List for Indoor and/or Outdoor Track and Field must be 3.0 or higher 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].
  • The cumulative GPA of all student-athletes on the institution’s NCAA Squad List for Indoor and/or Outdoor Track and Field must be computed by the following method:
  • Total the cumulative number of semester hours or quarter hours earned for all student-athletes on the NCAA Squad List, including the most recent grading period;
  • Total the cumulative number of quality points (GPA multiplied by the number of credit hours) earned by all student-athletes on the NCAA Squad List, including the most recent grading period;
  • Divide the cumulative number of quality points earned by the cumulative number of semester or quarter hours earned.
