The NCSA rankings rate colleges and universities at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels by averaging the U.S. News & World Report ranking, the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup ranking and the NCAA student-athlete graduation rate.

The collegiate power rankings based off of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup rating evaluate the strength of NCAA athletic departments, while the U.S. News & World Report rating recognizes institutions of academic excellence. The student-athlete graduation rates are based on those provided by the NCAA.
This year’s top-ranked school is the University of California-San Diego. Missouri S&T was the top-ranked team in the GLVC in the 19th spot, with six other schools from the conference also finishing among the top 100. The others were the University of Missouri-St. Louis (24th), the University of Wisconsin-Parkside (39th), Quincy University (48th), Saint Joseph’s University (51st), Kentucky Wesleyan University (60th) and Drury University (92nd).
