One human poll made up the 2003 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 2003 NAIA Football National Championship.[1]

The poll release dates were:

  • August 26, 2003 (Preseason)
  • September 9, 2003 (Week 1)
  • September 16, 2003 (Week 2)
  • September 23, 2003 (Week 3)
  • September 30, 2003 (Week 4)
  • October 7, 2003 (Week 5)
  • October 14, 2003 (Week 6)
  • October 21, 2003 (Week 7)
  • October 28, 2003 (Week 8)
  • November 4, 2003 (Week 9)
