An NCAA Division III Independent is a team that plays under the sanctioning of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and their guidelines for Division III play. Division III emphasizes academics over athletics, as there are no athletic scholarships. Teams playing in this category are usually new programs that have either started from scratch or elevated a club program to varsity status. At the Division III level, the team usually only play for a season or two as an independent as some conferences prefer a program to be established prior to accepting them into their conference. Some teams start up giving a previously existing all sport conference enough members to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament for their conference tournament winner.
