The NCAA Division III Women's Soccer Championship is an American intercollegiate college soccer tournament conducted by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to determine the Division III national champion. It has been held annually since 1986 when the Division III championship was established for universities that do not award athletics scholarships.[1] A third Division II championship was added in 1988.

Traditionally, the tournament is held in November and December of each year following the end of the regular season. Originally, the tournament finals were held on the campus of one of the teams participating in the semifinals. Since 2004, however, it has been held a pre-determined neutral site.

The current champions are the Washington University Bears. With five national titles, the Messiah Falcons are the most successful team.[2]
