Women's Division 2 Swimming Colleges

At Division 2 swimming colleges, athletes will see an abundance of talent and many swimmers with the ability to final at the NCAA Division 1 Swimming Championships. This level simply offers a better balance between academics, athletics and the social aspects of college. The benefits and other factors that convince many women to swim D2 are:

For those women wanting to compete at a high level while maintaining great life balance, checking out D2 colleges could bring clarity to the college selection process. Swimming will be a large part of a student-athlete’s life at a D2 school, but it will not be all they have time to do. 

How many Division 2 colleges with women’s swimming are there?

According to NCSA’s most recent data, there are 77 women’s Division 2 swimming colleges. The scholarship number is only 8.1,  compared to 14 offered in Division 1 as the limit per team. Smaller team sizes are common, with most athletes not receiving a full scholarship unless they are a transcendent talent.

Women’s Division 2 swimming rankings

The college selection process can be difficult if the only data an athlete has is whether a swim team is fast or not. This does not incorporate other factors that make the college experience a positive one. For these reasons NCSA puts together best colleges for women’s D2 swimming to help make a college choice one that is more informed. We use a variety of college rankings along with cost, student life on campus, athletics and the value of the education at an institution.
