The University of Bridgeport men's and women's swimming teams have earned recognition by College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for academic excellence during the 2012 Fall Semester, as both groups were named CSCAA All-Academic Teams.

This is the 17th consecutive semester that the UB women have received this academic honor from the CSCAA.
