The University of St. Thomas will begin their exploratory year membership in Division III athletics on Sept. 1, 2018 according to their press release today. They will also become the 10th member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC).  The SCAC includes Austin College, Centenary College, Colorado College, University of Dallas, Johnson and Wales University, Schreiner University, Southwestern University, Texas Lutheran University, Trinity University, and now University of St. Thomas.

The athletic department has grown to nine sports, which includes women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s golf and in 2018-2019 will compete in men’s and women’s cross-country. 

St. Thomas' invitation from the SCAC requires that they successfully complete their exploratory year which will lead to them becoming a provisional member in 2019-20. Division III is the largest of any division having 451 NCAA Division III members and over 194,000 student-athletes.
