Forty-two conferences were awarded automatic qualification for the championship. One team was selected from Pool B, which consists of independent institutions, as well as members of conferences that do not meet the requirements for automatic qualification. The final 18 berths were reserved for Pool C, which includes institutions from automatic-qualifying conferences that did not win their conference championship, and any remaining Pool B teams.

All tournament games leading up to the national semifinals will be played on the campuses of competing institutions. Three first-round games will be conducted Nov. 13 with the winners advancing to play Nov. 16 against three teams that earned first-round byes.

Thirteen sites will host four teams for first- and second-round competition Nov. 15-16. Second-round winners will advance to one of four sectional sites Nov. 22-23.

Winners of the four sectionals will advance to the national semifinals, which take place Dec. 5 at Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, Missouri, with Fontbonne and the Kansas City Sports Commission serving as co-hosts.
