Swimmers qualified who qualified for the meet hit at least a "B" standard in their event.

Athletes may only swim up to four individual events, and three relays, at the championship. 

LIVE RESULTS: 2019 championships event schedule and live results

Any team with four qualified swimmers is eligible for relay entries. Teams can also bring four swimmers who did not qualify individually to swim on a relay assuming the team's relay has met a qualifying standard. 

Divers earned a spot on the preliminary qualification list for the meet after first achieving the minimum point total and minimum degrees of difficulty in either the six optional and/or 11 dives during the qualification period. They also have to participate in the qualification meet, which will occur one day before the national championships at the national championship site. 

The top nine male divers and 11 female divers on the 1 meter and 3 meter boards at the qualification meet will earn an automatic bid to the national championship. If a diver places on two boards, an additional qualifying spot will open up for the next highest place athlete on 1 meter and 3 meter, alternating between boards for each following bid. Eighteen total male divers and 22 total female divers will earn spots.
