Welcome to our companion reference information for all future realignment changes within college athletics. We publish a new article each year that lists all the changes that will occur in the future. Given the number of changes in the list that covers numerous years, we have decided to provide another way to view the information.

Below is a list of every NCAA and NAIA conference as of the 2023-24 academic year and includes whether or not any changes are occurring in the current year or the future. Regardless if there are any changes, clicking the “Yes” or “No” link in that column will bring you to that conference’s corresponding table in this article. The table lists all the members for the current academic year followed by any changes occurring in the next four years. The table below is automatically sorted by Division and then the alphabetical name. We’ve listed every conference name and a more common acronym (the SEC is listed as Southeastern Conference) but the table is searchable if you do not want to scroll.

All tables below will be updated as future realignment changes become known. The membership column for each conference will only be updated at the start of a new academic year. We will also list any changes effective in the current year for reference. You can skip to Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, or NAIA by clicking the links.
