The school's athletics programs historically competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, and also competed in national tournaments of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). Southern Virginia began its athletic program in the fall of 1997, one year after it became a four-year liberal arts college with an LDS environment. In 1998, the Knights joined the United States Collegiate Athletic Association. The 2012–13 school year was SVU's first as a provisional NCAA Division III member; it joined the Capital Athletic Conference in July 2013, and became eligible for conference championships in 2014–15.
SVU became fully eligible for the NCAA in July 2016.
