    found this on the internet:
    College divisions are determined basically on how much money a school wants to put into its sports program. Division I is made up of a lot of large state schools and financially strong private schools. Division II is for schools that still give out money for scholarships but not enough for vast athletic complexes. Division II is made up of a lot of private schools and smaller state schools or branch campuses.
    Division III is for extremely small schools who wish to have an athletic program that is very cost efficient. DIII schools are not allowed to give out any athletic scholarships. These divisions are for the NCAA which is the major athletic association. There are other associations, like the NAIA, that a school may participate in.
