BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — More than 1,400 current and former student-athletes at Southeastern Conference universities earned degrees during the 2021-22 academic year.

A total of 1,131 SEC student-athletes graduated from their respective universities during the month of May, following 339 graduates in the fall. Each of the SEC’s 21 sponsored sports is represented among the graduates, and student-athletes of several non-sponsored SEC sports also earned their degrees.

Any of these graduates who did not exhaust their eligibility will wear the SEC Graduation Patch in competition next year. The 2021-22 academic year marked the sixth year of the SEC Graduate Patch initiative, where the SEC logo patch on graduates’ uniforms is replaced with a special patch with the word “Graduate” underneath the conference logo. The SEC Graduation Patch was worn by more than 675 student-athletes during the 2021-22 academic year.
