(S.D.)- Minnesota D3 School Trying To Jump To D1, Summit League

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 06/19/2020 07:26 AM
(Chadrad Sports)- The University of St. Thomas has NCAA support for the Minnesota school’s bid to move its athletic programs directly from Division III to Division I.

The NCAA’s Division I council announced St. Thomas can make a formal request to waive reclassification rules. Currently, a 12-year process with a stop in Division II is required.

The NCAA will vote by April on a proposal to alter those rules to allow any Division III school to move directly to Division II. 

St. Thomas will be ejected from its Division III league after the 2020-21 school year for competitive reasons.  An invitation to the Summit League is believed to be extended already should a move happen.
