The University of Mary Washington is a proud member of NCAA Division III. As a Division III institution, we do not offer athletic scholarships nor do we utilize the National Letter of Intent program. However, all of our sports are very competitive and roster spots must be offered and earned.

The head coach will make the determination as to whether a tryout will be offered to the prospective student-athlete. A tryout means at least one opportunity to participate in sport-related activity observed by the head coach during the championship or non-championship segment. If the prospective student-athlete participates in preseason activities, the prospective student-athlete will be afforded a tryout.

Roster spots are evaluated annually, based on criteria including academic and athletic performance, team commitment and chemistry, and social responsibility. Each head coach, in consultation with the director of athletics, has the autonomy to determine the final roster for their sport. Any questions about a current or prospective student-athlete's roster status should be directed to that sport's head coach.
