The National Collegiate Athletic Association serves as the athletics governing body

for more 1,300 colleges, universities, conferences, and organizations. The national

office is Indianapolis, Indiana, but the member colleges and universities develop the

rules and guidelines for athletics eligibility and athletics competition for each of the

three divisions. The NCAA is committed to the student

competition in a fair, safe, inclusive and sportsmanlike manner.


The NCAA membership includes:

• 346 active Division I members;

• 291 active Division II members, and:

universities do not.
