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.
I think that the University of Michigan has the most NCAA championships
There are 57 division 1 and 32 division 2 colleges that offer lacrosse scholarships for men. That's a total of 1,009.26 in the NCAA because of the amount of scholarships able to be awarded to students per team is allowed.. There are 83 division 1 colleges and 37 division 2 colleges that offer scholarships for women, a total of 1,211 in the NCAA.
NCAA Division II has no subdivisions like Division I does. So there is no Division II-AA, or, of course, II-A.

The most likely answer is the Division I of the NCAA, which is one of three divisions of colleges and universities based on several factors.
There are 347 American colleges and universities classiefied as Division I for National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition. And some of these colleges are: Boston College, Boston University, Berkeley University of California, and so on.
Clemson University is a member of the NCAA Division I as well as a member in the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
