Embry-Riddle athletics program now an NCAA member

Last Updated: Monday, July 17, 2017

The NCAA Division II Membership Committee has determined that the Embry-Riddle athletics program in Daytona Beach has successfully completed the transition from the NAIA to full-fledged NCAA II membership.  

The Eagles' first contest as a member of Division II will be held on Thursday, Aug. 31 when the men’s soccer team hosts Francis Marion University (S.C.).

Achieving full NCAA Division II membership is a three-year process and Embry-Riddle officially started the journey in 2014 by playing the last two seasons against NCAA II competition but was not eligible for team/individual awards or postseason play.

As a full member, the Eagles are now eligible for the postseason in both the NCAA and the Sunshine State Conference.
