For schools that are independent in football only, see NAIA independent football schools.

NAIA independent schools are 4-year institutional members of the NAIA that play independent of any formal conference affiliation.[1] Many NAIA independent schools are members of the Association of Independent Institutions (AII), which allows members to have a formal route to NAIA tournaments.
