The NCAA oversees the NCAA Division III recruiting operations. The Division III Recruiting Rules are more relaxed than the other NCAA divisions. There are no set NCAA Division III Recruiting Calendars. College coaches at the NCAA Division III level can contact and recruit without certain dead periods, contact periods, and quiet periods. Without the big athletic recruiting budgets like at the Division I level, the flexibility in recruiting at the Division III level helps level the playing field. Division III schools cannot offer athletic scholarships, only academic scholarships. Student- Athletes with good grades have a better chance at getting recruited and scholarship money at the Division III level.
