Division I

The NCAA began conducting a Women's Division I Soccer Championship tournament in 1982 with a 12-team tournament. Currently, the tournament field consists of 64 teams.

Historically, North Carolina has been the dominant school in Division I women's soccer. Known widely as one of the most successful collegiate programs in any NCAA sport, the Tar Heels have won an astounding 20 national championships of the 29 NCAA tournaments contested. Also, they have reached the College Cup (the semifinals and finals of the Division I championship) 25 times. Head coach Anson Dorrance is considered the greatest women's soccer coach in NCAA history, leading the Tar Heels since the inception of the program in 1979.

Other successful schools include Notre Dame (3 titles), Portland (2 titles), and Santa Clara (1 title).
