Athletics. UNA sponsors twelve varsity sports which compete in Division II of the NCAA and Gulf South Conference.

In accordance with NCAA regulations, an athletic scholarship or grant-in-aid may cover the following costs: tuition, fees, room, board, and course related books. The selection of student recipients as well as the size of the scholarship award are determined by the head coach of the respective sport. The NCAA also establishes a maximum number of scholarships which can be awarded in each sport. Scholarship awards are made for a period of one year and are renewable. Prospective student athletes should contact the head coach in their sport for further information.
