The Capital One Academic All-America® program, as presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), was established in 1952 to recognize the best and brightest in collegiate athletics.

The Academic All-America® program has honored thousands of student-athletes since its inception. It encompasses all sports in which the NCAA and NAIA conducts championships. There are separate teams selected in football, women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball and men's and women's track and cross-country. For student-athletes in other sports, such as swimming, tennis, golf, hockey, they are eligible for the men's and women's at-large programs. The Academic All-District teams (in eight geographic districts) are voted on by the CoSIDA membership at large, with First Team selections advancing to the national Capital One Academic All-America® ballot. At that point, First Team, Second Team and Third Team Academic All-America® performers are chosen by the Academic All-America Committee members and CoSIDA Board of Directors.

The Capital One Academic All-America® Program is a highly selective scholar-athlete honor. Approximately 1,950 of the 12,000 student-athletes nominated annually receive "First-Team Academic All-District" honors, the first level of the award process. Only 820 of those 1,950 currently gain the prestigious Capital One Academic All-America honors, including a prestigous 288 receiving Academic All-America® First-Team recognition.

Capital One has sponsored the Academic All-America® Program since 2011. The teams progam also has be sponsored by GTE (1985-2000), Verizon (2000-04) and ESPN The Magazine (2004-10).
