It's Official, Only Two Apply To Join D2 MembershipIn an email reply to our request from Meghan Durham Assistant Director of Public and Media Relations
The application deadline for Division II membership for the 2015-16 academic year was February 1, 2015.
We received two applications – from Westminster College and Auburn University at Montgomery – that will be reviewed by the committee in July.
This is the lowest number of applicants since the Senior Reports starting covering this process.
NOTE: We appreciate the NCAA and Meghan for their replies to our request over the past several years.updated 11-26-14
NCAA schools looking to reclassify to Division II could soon see new membership requirements
**-The subcommittee upheld the membership committee’s decision requiring Fresno Pacific University to repeat the provisional year with conditions.
**-In an Aug. 26 teleconference, the membership committee amended its original decision to require Southern Wesleyan University to repeat candidacy year one and permitted the school to begin the second year of the membership process.
**-Holy Names University appealed the membership committee’s July decision requiring the university to repeat candidacy year two; that decision was upheld.
**-In July, the membership committee determined that new applicants Cumberland University, Georgetown College and Westminster College were not prepared to enter the Division II membership process.
Cumberland and Georgetown appealed the decisions and, after hearing the appeals, the management council subcommittee determined that the membership committee did not err in its original decisions. The subcommittee found that the membership committee properly applied NCAA legislation and official interpretations and did not deviate from approved procedures. Therefore, the subcommittee determined that the decisions of the membership committee should not be overturned.
All membership decisions for the year are final.
