An 8 second violation in the NBA is the same as a 10 second violation in college and high school Basketball. An 8 second violation is called when the offense doesn't get the ball across halfcourt within 8 seconds.

If the player doesn't move the ball out of the backcourt in 10 seconds it is a violation and the possession goes to the other team.

Types of basketball violations?

There are many violations of basketball. You can not move with the ball when you are not dribbling. That is called a travel. The only exception is when you take two steps for a layup. You can not dribble the ball, pick it up, and then dribble again. That is called a double dribble. If you are on offense, you can not stay in the key for longer then 3 seconds or else you will get a 3 seconds call. You have 5 seconds to throw the ball in when it is out of bounds. If you don't get the ball inbounds in time it will be a turnover. You have 10 seconds to get the ball down the court onto the opposite half to which the ball was thrown in. If you don't get it across halfcourt on time that will be a turnover. These are just a few of the many violations.

Is there a 10 second rule for women's ncaa basketball?

No, there is no 10 second rule in women's NCAA basketball. However, there is a 30-second shot clock. A team in possession of the ball can spend the entire 30 seconds in the back court and never bring the ball over the half court line. As a practical matter, teams are trying to score, and they move the ball up the court quickly. The lack of a 10 second rule does not have a significant impact on the game, in my opinion.
