Eligible student-athletes must be enrolled full-time at a conference institution, participate on a varsity team, and display positive conduct on and off campus. In total, the Empire 8's nine full-time members and 10 affiliates saw 817 student-athletes thrive in the classroom and receive President's List accolades during the fall.

The EC men's soccer team led the way with eight selections, followed by men's ice hockey with seven. Baseball, softball, women's volleyball, women's soccer and cheerleading each placed five student-athletes on the E8 President's List.
