The Nebraska swimming and diving team earned recognition from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for a combined 3.52 grade-point average. Nebraska's team GPA ranked No. 15 out of 194 NCAA Division I women's swimming and diving programs and first in the Big Ten Conference.  Six members of the team earned CSCAA Scholastic All-America honors for their work in the classroom in 2013-14. 

Sophomore diver Anna Filipcic earned first-team honors for her outstanding performance in the classroom. Filipcic, who was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll twice, was also a member of the inaugural Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2014.

Shannon Guy received honorable-mention honors during her senior season at Nebraska. Guy also was named an honorable-mention CSCAA Scholastic All-American in 2012. Guy was a three-time academic All-Big Ten and Big Ten Distinguished Scholar recipient. In 2014, Guy was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship team and awarded a Nebraska Student-Athlete HERO Leadership award for her commitment to the community.  Guy was also a six-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll selection and a two-time member of the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll.

Fellow senior Bailey Pons joined Guy in earning honorable-mention CSCAA Scholastic recognition. Pons, who also joined Guy as an honorable-mention CSCAA Scholastic All-American in 2012, was a three-time academic All-Big Ten choice and Big Ten Distinguished Scholar.  Pons was a member of the 2014 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team and has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete honor roll six times and Big 12 Commissioner's honor roll twice.

Also earning honorable-mention accolades was senior Rebekah Land, who was a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and a member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship team in 2014.  Land has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll three times.

Swimmers and divers named first-team CSCAA Scholar All-American have achieved a cumulative, or term grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the academic term coinciding with their NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships and have qualified and competed at the Championship.  The honorable-mention CSCAA Scholar All-American honor is awarded to swimmers and divers with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester, or cumulative average, and have achieved a "B" time standard but did not qualify or compete in their respective national championship.  Divers qualify by competing at their respective championship qualifying meets, zones or NCAA preliminary rounds.
