It has to do with number of wins and overall achievement.  Getting to D-II is easy, win 6 games at DIII and there are plenty of teams (not good ones mind you) open in DII.   That's the only measurable that I know of.  I don't think it is possible in 5 seasons unless you won the NC in DIII, DII, and DIAA in those 5 seasons.   I'd bank on between 8 and 10 as minimum if you are racking up wins fast.

I started out in DIII with this Heisman experiment with the goal to get to D1A ASAP. It is my 10th season and I made it. 2 seasons in DIII, 3 in DII, 4 in D1AA, and now in the WAC in D1A. 89 total wins over 9 seasons.

Generally around 85 wins or so.  CC's may speed that up a little.  Plus depending on what school your looking at in D1A you may need more than the minimum to be qualified for it, especially if it is in a BCS conference.  Wins are the bigger factor.   As someone said, you can get to DII fast.  But it will take around 45 wins or so to make the jump from DII on up to D1AA.
