List of NCAA Division 2 Schools
There are 312 Division 2 colleges across 45 different states. Typically, these are smaller public and private universities with under 10,000 students. All scholarships at the NCAA DII level are equivalency scholarships, which mean the majority are partial scholarships. However, you can still get a full-scholarship at the D2 level when you find the right school.
What to Expect From NCAA DII Schools
Don’t think that just because it is a D2 School the competition isn’t very good. Most of the athletes at a DII colleges can play DI somewhere, but choose DII for a better scholarship package or because the school is a better fit. Many D1 athletes actually transfer to D2 schools every year, looking for more playing time and a better balance of academics and athletics. The only real difference between the two division levels is how deep the talent pool goes and how coaches are able to offer financial aid.
