Concordia University Irvine was notified by the NCAA on Friday that it had completed the three-year process to become a full NCAA Division II member beginning in the fall. In addition, Biola University was notified it had completed the first year of its three-year process and was approved to begin the second. Both are longtime NAIA institutions. “We are very excited to become a full NCAA Division II member,” Concordia president Kurt Krueger said in a statement. “Today’s decision by the NCAA serves as a testament to our core values, faculty and staff, as well as the integrity of our athletics department toward NCAA compliance, our university’s fiscal responsibility and our commitment to high academic standards.” Concordia, a private Christian university established in 1976, competed as a provisional member in the Division II PacWest Conference the past three school years. It will become the only NCAA Division II school in Orange County when the move officially takes place Sept. 1. –  Robert Morales, dailynews.comRead More
