FULTON, Miss. – Itawamba Community College had 39 student-athletes awarded National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) honors for their academic achievements.

To earn NJCAA All-Academic honors, student-athletes must have a GPA of 3.60 or higher and have completed 24 or more credit hours. There are three level of academic honors: NJCAA All-Academic First Team is a 4.0 GPA; Second Team 3.80-3.99 GPA; Third Team 3.60-379 GPA.

Please Note: Per NJCAA criteria, nominations are based on the 2018-19 school term only and is not a cumulative GPA. Students must earn at least 24 hours in the 2018-19 school year to be eligible. Also, any hours attempted must be included if the student stays in the class beyond the 15th calendar day of the term. If a student-athlete drops the class after that point, those hours are still counted in hours attempted with zero quality points. The MACJC follows the same criteria as the NJCAA.
