Best Softball Colleges

Top College Softball Programs

NCSA analyzed over 1,100 four-year colleges with college softball programs across four division levels (D1, D2, D3 and NAIA) to develop a list of the Best Softball Colleges for Student-Athletes.

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, general academic rankings by U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges, IPEDS graduation rates and IPEDS average cost after aid.  

For more information on the NCSA Power Rankings, visit our press kit or email us.
