Men's Division 1 Swimming Colleges

Student-athletes who dream of being recruited by Division 1 swimming colleges need to understand they are competing against the best swimmers in the country. Coaches at these schools are seeking the very top talent to help their team score points.

How Many Division 1 Swim Teams Are There? 

There are 143 men’s Division 1 swimming colleges across the country. Each team can offer up to a maximum of 9.9 scholarships if they are fully funded. Since swimming is an equivalency sport, the scholarships are usually divided amongst several swimmers, making it rare for an athlete to receive a full-ride scholarship.

Division 1 Swimming Rankings

In addition to NCAA rankings based on team performance only, NCSA also provides our own list of best NCAA division 1 swimming colleges. The best Division 1 swimming colleges on our Power Rankings are compiled using a number of data sources that factor in other aspects of the college experience, such as costs and graduation rates.
