(1)  Statistics report student athlete participation at the collegiate varsity level  and do not reflect school club and intramural sports teams.

**  Fencing is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded to meet the limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division II school can award 9 female fencers each a 1/2 scholarship and still meet the  limit of 4.5 per school.  See our page on scholarship limits for more information.

(2) Average Athletic Scholarship is the average amount of athletically related student aid per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific 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.

(1) Varsity Rosters may include junior varsity, redshirt, reserve and/or practice squad players and do not reflect club or intramural team participants.

(2) Average Athletic Scholarship is the average amount of athletically related student aid per athlete for ALL varsity sports sponsored by the specific 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.

(3)  SAT Math Average:  For each school this represents the range where the middle half of the admitted students scored, so 1/4 scored below the lower end (25th percentile) and 1/4 scored above the upper end (75th percentile).
