Complete List of Division 2 Football Colleges

The motto of NCAA Division 2 athletes is “I choose Division 2.” With over 171 DII schools competing in football there are a lot of athletes that choose to play at this level. Most student athletes at this level have the ability to compete at the D1 level, but choose a D2 schools for a better academic, athletic or social fit. While these schools tend to be small or medium size schools, there are some larger D2 schools as well.

NCAA DII Football Scholarships

All division 2 colleges can offer what are called equivalency scholarships. This means a football coach can divide up a single scholarship among multiple athletes on the team. This is why it is more common for D2 football athletes to get partial scholarships and not the full-ride scholarships you need in head-count sports.

How Football Players Get Recruited to D2 Schools

Division 2 colleges have significantly smaller recruiting budgets than NCAA D1 schools. For this reason, football coaches at DII colleges rely on websites like BeRecruited to identify and make initial evaluations of student-athletes. Just as you are searching for colleges, coaches use our platform to identify potential student-athletes. By having a profile on BeRecruited you will give yourself a better chance of getting discovered by coaches.
