Beach volleyball is recognized by NCAA Division I and II schools as an emerging sport for women and is an equivalency sport which means athletic scholarships can be split into partial awards in any proportion up to the maximum allowed. NCAA I schools that do not sponsor traditional (indoor) Women's Volleyball are allowed an annual limit of 8 equivalency scholarships for Beach Volleyball. See our page on scholarship limits for more information. Beach Volleyball is the fastest growing NCAA sport!

*  Average athletic scholarship is the average award per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the school. Some athletes receive full awards, some receive partial and many receive none. Additionally some sports within a school may be fully funded, some partially and some sports provide no athletic scholarships. Private schools generally have higher tuition than public schools and the average award will reflect this.

 % receiving school FA reported in the tables below is the percentage of ALL undergrads (athletes & non-athletes)  who received financial assistance directly from the school (i.e. scholarships & grants). Avr School FA Award is the average amount of the award received by those students who received financial assistance directly from the school.

SAT & ACT percentiles: The tables below report the mid-range for SAT Math and ACT composite scores of the school’s entering students: 50% of incoming students scored within the range reported, 25% scored at or below the low end of the range (25th percentile) and 25% scored at or above the high end of the range (75th percentile).

 
 
Weekly Time Commitment for NCAA Volleyball Players:
  Athletic Academic Total Hours
 Average Weekly Hours (In-Season)  Hours Hours per Week
NCAA I   Volleyball 35 37 72
NCAA II  Volleyball 34 42 76
NCAA III  Volleyball 29 44 73
Average 33 41 74
 
If you want to play College Volleyball expect the athletic commitment to require nearly as much time as the academic work load - basically 2 full-time jobs! And contrary to popular belief, Division III Volleyball requires the same commitment of weekly hours as Division I.  Source: NCAA Goals Study.
