The University of Georgia Gym Dogs, including individual apparatus national champions Courtney McCool and Grace Taylor, are honored at the White House by President of the United States George W. Bush for their winning the 2008 Division I team national championship.

The NCAA introduced women's gymnastics as a championship sport in 1982. Gymnastics was one of twelve women's sports added to the NCAA championship program for the 1981-82 school year, as the NCAA engaged in battle with the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women for sole governance of women's collegiate sports. The AIAW continued to conduct its established championship program in the same twelve (and other) sports; however, after a year of dual women's championships, the NCAA conquered the AIAW and usurped its authority and membership.

Under the NCAA, only five universities have claimed the overall Division I championship; the Division II competition was discontinued in 1987. During the early years of competition, the University of Utah under the leadership of head coach Greg Marsden dominated the field of competition. During the late 1980s and 1990s, the University of Georgia (UGA), coached by Suzanne Yoculan, and the University of Alabama, coached by Sarah Patterson, gained success and claimed several titles. From 1996 to 2012, the University of Alabama, the University of Georgia and UCLA, coached by Valorie Kondos Field, have claimed all the NCAA titles; four titles for the University of Alabama, six for UCLA and seven for the University of Georgia.

In 2013, the University of Florida, coached by Rhonda Faehn, broke the reign of the prior four teams, winning the NCAA Championships held at UCLA's newly renovated Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. Faehn was a competitor for the Bruins 1990–1992.
