This is a list of colleges and universities in the United States (and one school in Canada) which sponsored a men’s lacrosse team that belonged to the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association in 2015. Per MCLA rules, a University or College with fielding an NCAA Division I FBS football team must play at the Division I level. Any other school plays at the MCLA Division II level, but may petition to “play up” at the Division I level. Likewise, teams designated as Division I may petition to “play down” at the Division II level, if they are deemed a “developing” team, and are ineligible for post season play.
