On August 15, 2003, South Dakota State announced that the university would begin the process to reclassify from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division I status. The reclassification process requires five years, starting with the 2003-04 exploratory season and ending with an evaluation visit following the 2007-08 season. That would make SDSU a fullfledged member of NCAA Division I for the 2008-09 season. This year, 2005-06, is the Provisional Second Year meaning SDSU must be in full compliance with all Division I legislation and membership requirements including scholarship minimums and Division I scheduling.
