Abstract
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate and analyze the indirect effects of an NCAA member institution's reclassification from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) during the years 2003 to 2012. The study analyzed the impacts of reclassification on financial contributions to the athletic department and to the general university fund, and the nonfinancial impacts of reclassification on student applications, student enrollment, student admission, university selectivity, and student quality. Descriptive statistics were used to examine the raw data totals over the time period analyzed and to examine the differences in averaged totals between a four-year pre- reclassification time period and a four-year post-reclassification time period at the reclassified institutions, a control group of FBS institutions, and a control group of FCS institutions.
