The SLC all-academic teams are voted on by a head coach, sports information representative, and academic/compliance staff member from each conference institution. Student-athletes must possess a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete one full academic year at the nominating institution to qualify for All-Academic selection. 

The Southland Conference awards committee, which consists of one administrator from each of the eight-member schools, votes for the student-athlete of the year. All nominees must have earned at least a 3.2 GPA on a 4.0 scale and demonstrated athletics achievement for at least two years at the nominating institution. 

In addition to the academic honor, Ferreya-Heit was also named to the 2021-22 All-Southland Conference Second Team and the SLC All-Tournament Team after helping lead the Hornets to a third-place finish in their first league post-season tournament.
