    NAIA  

     

    What is the difference between NCAA and NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics)?

    NAIA is a less cumbersome, with less restrictions between the student-athlete and a coach.  Open and frequent communication allows the student to become more comfortable with the school and athletic staff.  These colleges and univesities are not Division I or II schools.  

     

    NAIA Registration is required for athletic participation in NAIA colleges (such as Montreat College and St. Andrews University)
