Best Answer

Division I-FBS (formerly Division 1-A) football programs are allowed to have 85 players on scholarship. The NCAA does not mandate that all 85 scholarships are "full" scholarships, although in practice it makes little sense to give a "half" or "fractional" scholarship since the rules govern number of players receiving a scholarship rather than the number of full scholarships.

In Division I-FCS (formerly Division 1-AA), programs are allowed 63 "equivalencies," meaning that they can give more than 63 players a scholarship as long as those scholarships do not total more than the equivalent of 63 full scholarships. Division II programs are allowed 36 "equivalencies," and Division III are allowed zero (Division III sports are non-scholarship).

What is a football bowl subdivision?

The Football Bowl Subdivision is the top level of college football in the United States. The NCAA divided Division I into two subdivisions based on the number of grants-in-aid (also called "scholarships") given to players. Formerly, the division was split into Division I-A and Division I-AA. Those subdivisions were renamed the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), respectively. The FBS concludes the season with a series of bowl games, each team playing a single postseason game with the top two teams meeting in the Bowl Championship Series' (BCS) National Championship Game. The FCS has a single-elimination tournament to determine its champion. FBS teams are allowed to have 85 scholarship players. The FCS has the equivalent of 63 full-ride scholarships, but unlike the FBS, these scholarships may be divided to provide partial scholarships to a number of players beyond the "limit."

Are Division 1-AA and Division II the same?

No, Division I-AA and Division II are totally different. Division II schools are generally small and don't have the athletic budgets that Division I and I-AA schools have. Currently in football, a Division I-AA school may have 63 players on scholarship (Division I is allowed 85) where a Division II school is allowed 36 players on scholarship.


What is the maximun amount for a division II scholarship?

Division II schools may give out full-ride scholarships, if they so choose. This is rare for most sports, however, as the total number of scholarships allowed is smaller than the number allowed in Division I. Players will typically get a half scholarship or a one-third scholarship. The amount of the scholarship (up to a "full-ride") is dependent on the athlete's skill level and the team's need for a particular player.


Can a college have both Division I and Division II sports teams?

Typically, no. However, some NCAA sports are not sponsored at all levels. For instance, Ice Hockey is sponsored by the NCAA as a Division I sport and a Division III sport, but there is no NCAA Division II Ice Hockey. Division II institutions that sponsor Ice Hockey can "play up" in a sport not sponsored in their division. Examples include Michigan Tech, Northern Michigan, and Lake Superior State, all of which are members of the NCAA Division II. They all sponsor NCAA Division I Ice Hockey teams. Previously, Division II programs could play Division III Ice Hockey (such as Mercyhurst College in PA). That is no longer allowed (although Division II programs that were already in Division III Ice Hockey were allowed to stay and were not forced to move to Division I). In other sports, such as football or basketball, which are supported at all levels, the school must have all of their sports programs in the same division.


How many football games can a college schedule?

The number varies by division. In Division I-FBS (the top division), programs can schedule up to 12 games per season, unless one of those games is against Hawai'i. If the program schedules Hawai'i, the program is allowed 13 regular season games (this is to assist Hawai'i with travel considerations). In Division I-FCS, programs can schedule 12 regular season games. In Division II, programs can schedule 11 regular season games. In Division III, programs can schedule 10 regular season games. In each lower division, there are more playoff selections/rounds, so the number of actual games played can often be 14 or 15 for teams that reach the national championship game in the respective divisions.
