In order to earn CCAA All-Academic Team honors, a student-athlete must be of sophomore athletic standing or higher and hold a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or better while competing in a conference-sponsored sport. The conference's Spring All-Academic Team consists of eligible student-athletes who compete in the sports of baseball, softball, men’s and women’s golf, and men’s and women’s track and field.

Women's track and field led the way for UC San Diego with 11 selections, followed by men's track and field (9) and baseball (9), softball (8), and men's golf (1).
