To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student athlete must complete two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale. 

Fairfield led the way with seven women named to the all-academic team while Quinnipiac's five student-athletes placed second on the women's side. Siena and Niagara both had four athletes honored, while Albany and Monmouth had two. 

The team was announced on the eve of the 2014 MAAC Women's Golf Championship, to be played at Disney's Palm Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. on Apr. 25-27.
