The Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference has recognized 1,282 full-time student-athletes as scholar-athletes for the 2012-13 academic year. The league's name was officially changed to the NACC on July 1 to begin the new academic year, but since the scholar-athlete awards honor the '12-13 year, they still don the former Northern Athletics Conference name.
Student-athletes competing in the conference must maintain a grade point average of 3.25 or higher for the academic year to be eligible for the honor. Each academic year stands by itself for determination of this award.
