The top four individuals from each session in each event (plus ties) from the semifinal team and all-around competition will compete in the Individual Event Finals on Sunday, Apr. 22 at 1 pm ET.

The NCAA Fayetteville Regional champion Bruins will have the Olympic rotation order and will start the meet on vault, followed by a bye, uneven bars, balance beam, a bye and then floor exercise. LSU starts on a bye before bars. Nebraska starts on uneven bars. Oklahoma begins on beam, Stanford has a bye before floor, and Utah starts on floor.

In the evening session, No. 1 seed Florida begins on vault, Ohio State has a bye before bars, Georgia begins on bars, Alabama starts on beam, Oregon State has the bye before floor, and Arkansas begins on floor.

The 12 qualifying teams were re-seeded based on National Qualifying Score, which took the teams' Regional Championships score and combined it with their Regional Qualifying Score. Teams seeded 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 12 were placed in one group, while teams seeded 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 were placed in the other group.
