Among teams with a dozen or more student-athletes, on the women's side Saint Francis (PA) led the nation with a 3.81 GPA. Grand Canyon University posted a 3.66 for the highest GPA among men's programs with a dozen or more participants. It is the third time the Antelope men have led Division I. The Sioux Falls women (3.80) and Adelphi Men (3.64) led all Division II programs. Conn College's women's team (3.77) and Caltech's men (3.63) led Division III programs with twelve or more participants.

Success in the classroom and pool went hand-in-hand. On average, twenty-three of the top twenty-five top finishers in each of the NCAA Championships earned the award, with every NCAA title-winning team in all three divisions posting a GPA of 3.17 or higher. Nine teams finished among the top ten nationally in both team GPA and at their respective national championships.

At the conference level, four leagues were perfect. The Pac-12, Big XII, UAA and Big East had each men's and women's program selected. Eight other leagues saw each of their women's programs chosen. These included the ACC, Atlantic 10, NEWMAC, Ivy League, WAC, American Athletic Conference, Conference-USA, and Southern Athletic Association.
