*Update:Auburn-Montgomery Loses D2 MembershipOn July 22, the Division II Management Council referred the decision to accept membership applications of Auburn University at Montgomery (Alabama) and Spring Hill College (Mobile, Ala.) back to the Division II Membership Committee for further review.
On July 26, citing new information obtained regarding UAM’s probationary status with the NAIA, the Membership Committee overturned its initial decision and voted to deny the institution’s application for acceptance into the Division II membership process. The decision to accept Spring Hill into year one candidacy was upheld.

2014According to a very reliable source Georgetown College will apply for D2 membership during the 2014 cycle. This after a firm was secured to do another new new study. SR hopes to verify with school officials.
It has been a "soap opera" journey for GC who decided to join D3 and than withdrew from that process, applied for D2 very late in the process and was denied membership in 2012 and than last summer said they would reapply for the early membership process in 2013. According to our sources they did not apply this year because of the search for a new president to replace President Crouch. In another "twist" (see link below) GC has renewed a search for a new president after two finalist withdrew from the process.
This year we have confirmed five schools have applied for D2 membership.
No D2 This Year For GeorgetownJUST IN - A reliable source tells us that Georgetown College will NOT aplly for D2 membership in February. Most likely due to the change in the president's office. We have an email into school officials to verify this information. Will update as soon as we receive confirmation.
Reply to our email request on Georgetown's NAIA Status
Per NAIA bylaws, Georgetown College would be eligible for NAIA postseason play in 2012-13. If Georgetown applies for NCAA membership again this upcoming year, then the institution would be ineligible for postseason play in 2013-14, regardless of whether the NCAA accepts the institution for membership.
