    Twenty-seven conferences received automatic qualification to the 2018 Division I Women's Golf Championships. The Southwestern Athletic Conference did not meet the conference automatic qualification requirements for this year's championships. This resulted in one additional at-large team being selected to participate. Individuals from the SWAC remained eligible for selection.

    In 2017, Arizona State University claimed its eighth NCAA Division I Women's Golf National Championship, an NCAA record, defeating Northwestern University 3-1-1 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois.
