The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Division I Team Rankings are voted on by nine CSCAA-member coaches and one media member.   The rankings will be released on a regular basis throughout the 2012-13 season, alternating weeks between a men's and women's team ranking.  This is the final ranking of the women's teams this season.

The CSCAA DI Poll Committee produced in-season rankings of the 25 best performing NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving teams in rank order at the time of each poll.  The poll is not designed to predict the result of the NCAA Championship, but rather which teams would win head-to-head against other teams in the country. Ranking are based on performances that have taken place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.
