Men’s Division 3 Lacrosse Colleges | D3 Lacrosse Schools

Competing at a NCAA Division 3 school lends itself to a more traditional college experience that builds well-rounded student-athletes. Division 3 programs offer the most opportunities to play college lacrosse outside of the Northeast region, with schools in Illinois, Texas, Colorado and other Midwest and southern states. Division 3 lacrosse colleges are characterized by their academic rigor and flexibility to participate in extracurricular activities outside of athletics. Another characteristic of Division 3 programs is a more relaxed recruiting process that allows greater freedom to coaches and recruits.

While athletic scholarships are not offered at the Division 3 level, Divisions 3 lacrosse teams are not short of talent. As a matter of fact, the majority of NCAA men’s lacrosse programs are Division 3.

What D3 colleges have men’s lacrosse teams? 

There are over 200 four-year colleges that offer Divisions 3 lacrosse programs, with a majority located in the Northeast. Division 3 lacrosse schools are organized into 24 conferences;  AMCC, CAC, Centennial Conference, CCIW, CSAC, CCC, EAC,  GNAC, HCAC, Independents, Landmark Conference, Liberty League, LEC, MAC, MIAA, MLC, NECC, NESCAC, NEWMAC, NAC, NCAC, NEAC, OAC, ODAC, PAC, SC, SAA, SCAA, SUNYAC, and SAC.
