BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Fifty-five LSU student-athletes were named to the 2018-19 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll on Tuesday by Commissioner Greg Sankey.

The 2019 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades posted from the 2018-19 academic calendar.

(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. letterwinner), 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.
