The IWLCA also recognized student-athletes who excelled in the classroom on the 2015 Individual Honor Roll.

To be eligible, student-athletes must have reached a junior status at their respective institution and achieve a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher.

In the 2014 season, the women's lacrosse team had three players qualify for the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll team, and has placed numerous student-athletes on the honor roll in each of the last 10 years.
