The Division III Women's College World Series (WCWS) is the final portion of the NCAA Division III Softball Championship for college softball teams in Division III.

Softball was one of twelve women's sports added to the NCAA championship program for the 1981-82 school year, as the NCAA engaged in battle with the AIAW for sole governance of women's collegiate sports. The AIAW continued to conduct its established championship program in the same twelve (and other) sports; however, after a year of dual women's championships, the NCAA conquered the AIAW and usurped its authority and membership.[1]

The most successful team in championship history is TCNJ, which has 5 national titles. Tufts are the current champions, who won their third title in 2015.
