The 2000 NCAA Rifle Championships were contested at the 21st annual NCAA-sanctioned competition to determine the team and individual national champions of co-ed collegiate rifle shooting in the United States. The championship was hosted by the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia.[1]

Defending champions Alaska again topped the team standings, finishing 139 points (6,285–6,156) points ahead of Xavier. This was the Nanooks' second consecutive and third overall team title. This event was also notable for being the first time West Virginia finished outside of the top three.

The individual championships went to Nicole Allaire (Nebraska) for the smallbore rifle and Kelly Mansfield (Alaska) for the air rifle. This was Mansfield's second consecutive air rifle title.
