Southern Nazarene Joins NCAA Division II

Posted: Updated:
BETHANY, Oklahoma -

Southern Nazarene has completed the lengthy process toward becoming full, active members of NCAA Division II the athletic department announced on Thursday.

It was a process that began nearly a decade ago, the last four of which have become well known on the SNU campus.

Southern Nazarene now becomes the first private institution in the state of Oklahoma to be full active members in NCAA Division II and is the first school of six that left the NAIA's Sooner Athletic Conference to complete the process. Fellow Great American Conference member Northwestern Oklahoma State and former SAC members Oklahoma Christian and Lubbock Christian all enter the provisional (third) year of the process while Rogers State enters candidacy year two of the process. Oklahoma Baptist has been accepted for its first year of the process.

SNU is now able to compete for GAC and NCAA postseason championships beginning in the 2014-15 academic year.
