The Fighting Irish will become the 15th member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Though Notre Dame will be a full member of the ACC, the football team will only play five games annually against league teams.
Notre Dame is currently in a deal with the Big East conference. The change over will happen as soon as the school can exit that arrangement.
"The ACC is composed of some of the most highly respected universities in the country, and we at Notre Dame look forward to joining them," said Notre Dame President, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. "With a mix of institutions, many of which are also private, similar to Notre Dame in size, and committed to excellence in research and undergraduate education, the ACC is an exceptionally good fit for us academically, as well as athletically."
