Student-athletes must be members of a sport sponsored by the CAA and achieve at least a 3.200 grade point average based on semester/quarter performance or cumulative GPA.

"We're extremely proud of the accomplishments of our student-athletes," said Jimmy Bass, UNCW's athletic director. "Our student-athletes are true champions who work every day to excel in the classroom and represent UNCW well. We applaud their continued success in both areas."

Overall, the conference honored 2,152 student-athletes from its member schools in 2015-16.  Read the full article.
