There are 295 Division II Schools.
There are 119 NCAA Division 1-A football schools and 109 Division 1-AA football schools. There about 200 Division II and 200 Division III football schools and about 75 NAIA football schools. That makes around 700 and that doesn't include junior college football.
There are 303 as of today. These come from 22 regional conferences and 22 unaffiliated schools.
NCAA Women's Division II Basketball Championship was created in 1982.
NCAA Division II.
NCAA Division II has no subdivisions like Division I does. So there is no Division II-AA, or, of course, II-A.
NCAA FBS, NCAA FCS, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, so 5 divisions. There is also junior college football of which there are two divisions, NJCAA and CCCAA.
That is the division below division I. Division one is where the top schools play while division two is for schools who don't attract many athletes or are a small school.
There are none. There are 3 divisions of NCAA Schools. Division I, II, and III. Division I has two subdivisions that until recently were labeled I-A and I-AA that are now referred to as Division I-Bowl Subdivision and Division I-Championship Subdivision. The renaming of the subdivisions described the manner of post season play.
The college football system is split into three divisions Division I FBS, Division I FCS. Division II and Division III. In division 2 football there are 282 schools.
There are nearly 300 division II schools and a significant number of those offer softball.
No. The "March Madness" NCAA tournament that is broadcast on national television is for the Division 1 championship. Equivalent tournaments and championships are held for each of the NCAA's divisions. So therefore, Division II teams would play in the Division II Tournament.
The NCAA allows each division I softball program 12 scholarships; and in division II, 7.2 scholarships are available.

NCAA Division I and II schools doled out $1.67 billion in athletic scholarships in 2005-06
No, Division I-AA and Division II are totally different. Division II schools are generally small and don't have the athletic budgets that Division I and I-AA schools have. Currently in football, a Division I-AA school may have 63 players on scholarship (Division I is allowed 85) where a Division II school is allowed 36 players on scholarship.
Typically, no. However, some NCAA sports are not sponsored at all levels. For instance, Ice Hockey is sponsored by the NCAA as a Division I sport and a Division III sport, but there is no NCAA Division II Ice Hockey. Division II institutions that sponsor Ice Hockey can "play up" in a sport not sponsored in their division. Examples include Michigan Tech, Northern Michigan, and Lake Superior State, all of which are members of the NCAA Division II. They all sponsor NCAA Division I Ice Hockey teams. Previously, Division II programs could play Division III Ice Hockey (such as Mercyhurst College in PA). That is no longer allowed (although Division II programs that were already in Division III Ice Hockey were allowed to stay and were not forced to move to Division I). In other sports, such as football or basketball, which are supported at all levels, the school must have all of their sports programs in the same division.
University size (student population) has no bearing on NCAA Division. For instance, Wayne State University in Michigan has over 30,000 students and Grand Valley State University in Michigan has 25,000 students. Some Division I schools have fewer than 15,000-such as Notre Dame with around 11,000. Many Division II schools, however, average around 5-10,000 students. Some only have a few hundred.
According the website USBasket.com, there are 325 teams in Division I, 265 teams in Division II, 325 teams in Division III and 259 teams in NAIA.
The Sunshine State conference - NCAA Division II
24 teams total. 6 per region
In football, Division II programs rarely, if ever, play Division I-FBS programs. Each year, a handful of Division I-FCS (I-AA) schools lose to a Division II opponent. In basketball, Division II schools beat Division I schools annually, but most of the Division I programs are "low major" programs, meaning they are weak teams in weak conferences. The last "shocking" loss in basketball was in November, 2007 when #8 Michigan State lost at home to Division II Grand Valley State, 85-82 in double overtime.
