Playoffs

Twenty-four conferences met the requirements for an automatic ("Pool A") bid to the playoffs. Besides the NESCAC, which does not participate in the playoffs, four conferences had no Pool A bid. The MASCAC and SAA were in the first year of the two-year waiting period; the SCAC and UAA had only four members, three short of the requirement. The American Southwest retained its Pool A bid despite falling below seven active Division III members, but entered the two-year grace period.

Schools not in Pool A conferences were eligible for Pool B. The number of Pool B bids was determined by calculating the ratio of Pool A conferences to schools in those conferences and applying that ratio to the number of Pool B schools. The 24 Pool A conferences contained 203 schools, an average of 8.5 teams per conference. Twenty-seven schools were in Pool B, enough for three bids.

The remaining five playoff spots were at-large ("Pool C") teams.
