A University of Colorado Denver Academic Athlete is an undergraduate student who attends CU Denver and is currently enrolled for 12 or more credit hours, and who has maintained a 4.0 grade point average for the past two semesters (excluding the summer semester) while carrying 12 or more credit hours each semester.

Student Awardees

118 students were honored in November 2015 at a recognition ceremony. Since the inception of this program in 1994, 1,339 students have received this designation. The awardees are presented with a fleece vest embroidered with a special academic athlete logo. If academic excellence is sustained for multiple years, a "star" is given to pin on the vest.

Award Ceremonies

These awards are presented by the Alumni Association at a recognition ceremony held in the fall each year.
