One human poll made up the 2012 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) football rankings, sometimes called the NAIA Coaches' Poll or the football ratings. Once the regular season was complete, the NAIA sponsored a playoff to determine the year's national champion. A final poll was then taken after completion of the 2012 NAIA Football National Championship.[1]

The poll release dates were:

  • April 18, 2012 (Spring)
  • August 6, 2012 (Preseason)
  • September 10, 2012
  • September 17, 2012
  • September 24, 2012
  • October 1, 2012
  • October 8, 2012
  • October 15, 2012
  • October 22, 2012
  • October 29, 2012
  • November 5, 2012
  • November 11, 2012 (Final)
  • December 18, 2012 (Postseason)
