Minnesota D3 School Trying To Jump To D1, Summit League

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.
