On March 1, 2019, the College of Staten Island announced their intended move to reclassify NCAA Divisions from NCAA Division III to NCAA Division II. Doing so required the College of Staten Island to officially apply to the NCAA. The NCAA, through a consultant site visit and an exhaustive review of CSI's application, rendered a decision on July 12, 2019, accepting the CSI Athletics program as a provisional Division II member.
In July 2022, The National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Membership Committee has validated the College of Staten Island's third year of Division II provisional status and has approved the College for full membership status in NCAA Division II.
