NCAA Division I

NCAA Division I is the highest level of intercollegiate athletics sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association in the United States. D-I schools include the major collegiate athletic powers, with larger budgets, more elaborate facilities and more athletic scholarships than Divisions II and III as well as many smaller schools committed to the highest level of intercollegiate competition; this level was once called the University Division of the NCAA, in contrast to the lower level College Division. The University Division was renamed Division I. For college football only, D-I schools are further divided into the Football Bowl Subdivision, the Football Championship Subdivision, those institutions that do not have any football program. FBS teams have higher game attendance requirements and more players receiving athletic scholarships than FCS teams; the FBS is named for its series of postseason bowl games, with various polls ranking teams after the conclusion of these games, while the FCS national champion is determined by a multi-team bracket tournament.

For the 2014–15 school year, Division I contained 345 of the NCAA's 1,066 member institutions, with 125 in the Football Bowl Subdivision, 125 in the Football Championship Subdivision, 95 non-football schools, with six additional schools in the transition from Division II to Division I. There was a moratorium on any additional movement up to D-I until 2012, after which any school that wants to move to D-I must be accepted for membership by a conference and show the NCAA it has the financial ability to support a D-I program. Schools must field teams in at least seven sports for men and seven for women or six for men and eight for women, with at least two team sports for each gender. Teams that include both men and women are counted as men's sports for the purposes of sponsorship counting. Division I schools must meet minimum financial aid awards for their athletics program, there are maximum financial aid awards for each sport that a Division I school cannot exceed. Several other NCAA sanctioned minimums and differences distinguish Division I from Divisions II and III.

Members must sponsor at least one sport for each sex in each playing season, again with coeducational teams counted as men's teams for this purpose. There are participant minimums for each sport, as well as scheduling criteria. For sports other than football and basketball, Division I schools must play 100 percent of the minimum number of contests against Division I opponents—anything over the minimum number of games has to be 50 percent Division I. Men's and women's basketball teams have to play all but two games against Division I teams. In addition to the schools that compete as D-I institutions, the NCAA allows D-II and D-III schools to classify one men's and one women's sport as a D-I sport, as long as they sponsored those sports before the latest rules change in 2011. Division II schools are eligible to compete for Division I national championships in sports that do not have a Division II national championship, in those sports may operate under D-I rules and scholarship limits. For football only, Division I was further subdivided in 1978 into Division I-A, Division I-AA, Division I.

In 2006, Division I-A and I-AA were renamed "Football Bowl Subdivision" and "Football Championship Subdivision", respectively. FBS teams are allowed a maximum of 85 players receiving athletically based aid per year, with each player on scholarship receiving a full scholarship. FCS teams have the same 85-player limit as FBS teams, but are allowed to give aid equivalent to only 63 full scholarships. FCS teams are allowed to award partial scholarships, a practice technically allowed but never used at the FBS level. FBS teams have to meet minimum game attendance requirements, while FCS teams do not need to meet minimum attendance requirements. Another difference is postseason play. Since 1978, FCS teams have played in an NCAA-sanctioned bracket tournament culminating in a title game, the NCAA Division I Football Championship, to determine a national champion. Meanwhile, FBS teams play in bowl games, with various polls ranking teams after the conclusion of these games, yielding a Consensus National Champion annually since 1950.

Starting with the 2014 postseason, a four-team College Football Playoff has been contested, replacing a one-game championship format that had started during the 1992 postseason with the Bowl Coalition. So, Division I FBS football remains the only NCAA sport in which a yearly champion is not determined by an NCAA-sanctioned championship event. Division I athletic programs generated $8.7 billion in revenue in the 2009–2010 academic year. Men's teams provided 55%, women's teams 15%, 30% was not categorized by sex or sport. Football and men's basketball are a university's only profitable sports, are called "revenue sports". From 2008 to 2012, 205 varsity teams were dropped in NCAA Division I – 72 for women and 133 for men, with men's tennis and wrestling hit hard. In the Football Bowl Subdivision, between 50 and 60 percent of football and men's basketball progra
