NCAA Membership (Article 3)

Article 3 in the NCAA Constitution defines expectations of active and prospective Division II member institutions and conferences.

For current Division II members, the resources on this page will help you become familiar with the conditions and obligations of membership and understand the requirements associated with conference membership, among other areas.

For prospective institutions and conferences, this page helps you navigate the application process for NCAA Division II membership. The provisional membership process is a multiyear endeavor that prepares institutions for membership as successful Division II athletics programs.

The three-year process includes opportunities for education, assessment and growth as institutions integrate the Division II philosophy, strategic positioning platform and best practices to be an exemplary Division II institution.
