The Division I Men's and Women's Basketball Committees have developed criteria in order to allow access for media that will reach the most fans and also for media agencies which cover teams all season.

If your media agency will attend a certain site regardless of the participating teams, click on the link for the appropriate city below.

If your agency plans to attend a site only if the team you are covering is sent the site, do not complete this online application. Instead, you may obtain credentials through that team's sports information contact. Each school's sports information office will share more information regarding this process during the course of the season. Media members covering a specific school will have to apply for credentials for each round of the championship.

Media agencies that are local to the men's preliminary round (first-, second- and third-round and regional) host cities have until March 2, 2012, to apply for credentials. National media agencies, as identified by the credentials criteria, have until 5 p.m., local time, the Monday prior to competition, to apply for credentials at any preliminary round site. 

For the women's championship, media agencies that are local to the preliminary round (first- and second-round and regional) host cities have until March 2, 2012, to apply for credentials. National media agencies, as identified by the credentials criteria, have until 5 p.m., local time, the Tuesday prior to competition, to apply for credentials at any preliminary round site.

The deadline for applying for credentials for the Men's or Women's Final Four is March 2, 2012.
