From the NCAA:


The advantages of competing in college sports are both immediate and lifelong. Participating in college sports provides opportunities to learn, compete and succeed. Student-athletes receive top-notch academic support, quality medical care, and regular access to outstanding coaching, facilities, and equipment. Student-athletes as a group graduate at higher rates than their peers in the general student body and feel better prepared for life after college.


College-bound student-athletes preparing to enroll in Division I or Division II school need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center to ensure they have met amateurism standards and are academically prepared for college coursework.
