The CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame honors former college student-athletes who have excelled in their professions and made substantial contributions to their communities. To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, a candidate must have been a CoSIDA Academic All-America team member who graduated at least 10 years prior to their nomination for induction.

Honorary inductees are eligible candidates who competed prior to the establishment of the Academic All-America program in their sport. The Academic All-America program was created by former Southern Methodist University (SMU) sports publicist Lester Jordan in 1952.

Eight Fighting Irish student-athlete alumni have earned induction into the prestigious CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame, two of whom were two-time Academic All-Americans during their careers at Notre Dame. Through June 2009, fewer than 110 student-athletes all-time across all sports and all teams, have been inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame.
