Organizational commitment to the university of student-athlete and nonstudent-athlete undergraduate college students was measured by modifying an established measure of affective, continuance, and normative commitment. Student-athletes reported significantly higher levels of overall organizational commitment as well as both affective and normative commitment. Length of time at the university and transfer status, however, yielded different patterns in commitment. Implications of these relationships for student life programming and comparisons with employee commitment are discussed.
