To be eligible for consideration in United Soccer Coaches College Rankings, a school must be a member of United Soccer Coaches College Services program.
College Rankings are available for the following levels and divisions:

The NAIA and NCCAA conduct their own weekly rankings.
* No regional rankings conducted on these dates.
The association separates the country into regions based on the regions set forth by the NCAA or other governing bodies. These regions may consist of one state or several states (or, in the case of NCAA Division I Men and Women, more than one conference). The Regional Chair relies on coaches in his or her region to report scores to them. The Chair also can refer to the College Soccer Scoreboard for the latest results from top schools in his or her region. The Regional Chairs then utilize those results as a tool to assist in compiling a regional top 10 listing. Only coaches vote on the poll, both regionally and nationally.
The intent of the intercollegiate rankings program, as outlined by the United Soccer Coaches Awards Committee and supported by its Board of Directors, is:
- To stimulate greater interest in men’s and women’s intercollegiate soccer on a regional and national level.
- To recognize schools with outstanding soccer programs.
The association recognizes that the national rankings at all levels are the best attempt to balance and compare the relative strengths and weaknesses of intercollegiate soccer programs throughout the country. The United Soccer Coaches rankings are an indicator of the week-to-week status of qualified programs and in no way should be used as a guide or indicator of eligibility for championship status.
