Originally known as the Mid-South Conference, the Gulf South Conference was formed by six universities in the summer of 1970: Delta State, Florence State (now North Alabama), Jacksonville State, Livingston (now West Alabama), Tennessee-Martin and Troy State. Scheduling problems for the 1970-71 academic year limited the league to football, won by Jacksonville State. In 1971, the league changed its name to the Gulf South Conference and added Southeastern Louisiana and Nicholls State University from the defunct Gulf States Conference (increasing the membership to eight). Thanks to its current 17 universities in six southeastern states, the GSC is the largest playing Conference in NCAA Division II.

For the 2011-12 academic year, University of Arkansas at Monticello, Arkansas Tech University, Harding University, Henderson State University, Ouachita Baptist University and Southern Arkansas University will be leaving to form the new Great American Conference. The University of New Orleans will be joining the conference as part of its move to Division-II.
