Complete List of NCAA Division 2 Colleges

ncaa division 2 athletes

Is your student interested in a school that provides a competitive sports program and a top-tier education? NCAA Division 2 (D2) schools are a great option. D2 colleges are typically smaller than D1 schools, but they can still be some of the best schools for student-athletes

Some student-athletes have the talent to compete at the D1 level, yet they choose to play a sport like D2 football, D2 basketball, or D2 baseball because it’s a better fit athletically, academically, or socially. Currently, there are 313 D2 schools across 47 states in the U.S. This includes Alaska, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia. 

D2 Colleges and Scholarships

Most D2 schools offer sports scholarships, but it’s important to note that your student-athlete might be less likely to get a full-ride sports scholarship at a D2 school. However, D2 schools provide reduced tuition costs and financial aid options. This means your student-athlete could end up with a financial package that is equal to or better than what D1 schools can offer.  

It’s important to note that D2 colleges don’t feature head count sports, which are sports that bring in revenue for a school.

NCAA D2 School Recruiting and Eligibility Rules

All D2 student-athletes must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center. This is where the NCAA determines eligibility based on your student-athlete’s grades and amateurism status. In addition to NCAA eligibility rules, D2 school coaches must follow specific rules when reaching out to new recruits.  

For example, coaches can only call players or communicate with them off-campus after June 15 of their sophomore year. However, if your student-athlete calls or visits a coach first, that coach can communicate with them freely. Learn about NCAA D2 school recruiting rules.

FAQs

What is a D2 college? 

NCAA Division 2 (D2) colleges are typically small- to medium-sized schools that offer student-athletes the chance to compete at a high level and earn partial sports scholarships. They also feature reduced tuition costs compared to D1 schools.  

What’s the difference between D1 and D2 colleges? 

NCAA Division 1 (D1) colleges are the premier schools for college sports. They typically feature larger athletic budgets and more student-athletes. They also offer more scholarship money. NCAA Division 2 (D2) colleges are smaller in scale and offer fewer athletic scholarship opportunities. However, D2 colleges can be a good option for some student-athletes, as they can offer competitive athletic programs and reduced tuition costs compared to D1 schools.
