NCAADivision I independent basketball schools are four-year institutions that do not belong to a basketball conference or a primary conference for all sports teams.
There was only one independent school for the 2014–15 athletic season, New Jersey Institute of Technology. NJIT became an independent school on July 1, 2013 after the Great West Conference, NJIT's former conference home, dissolved due to all other conference members leaving for more established conferences. NJIT joined the Atlantic Sun Conference on July 1, 2015. There will not be an independent program for the 2015–16 basketball season.
