Best College Athletic Programs
Top College Athletic Programs
Each year, NCSA Power Rankings recognize the best college athletic programs, broken down by sport and division level. NCSA analyzed over 1,000 college athletic programs across five division levels (D1-FBS, D1-FCS, D2, D3 and NAIA) to develop a list of the Top 100 College Athletic Programs for Student-Athletes.
NCSA understands that the college experience includes more than just athletics for student-athletes. For this reason, NCSA uses a variety of data sources to compile our rankings.
NCSA Power Rankings are based on proprietary analysis of NCSA Favorites data obtained from the college search activity of the over 2 million student-athletes on the NCSA recruiting network, U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges general academic rankings, and the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard graduation rates and average cost after aid.
