The rankings for at-large bids (must have reached quarterfinals of Regional to be eligible for at-large bids) * indicates they have met that requirement, + indicates All-American qualifier, # indicates regional winner. Eight at-large bids available for women, seven for the men. There are no at-large bids in doubles.

WOMEN: (It appears there is more leeway in at-large bids for women, with having played the regional enough for consideration. See this selection document.)
