yes. the usta actually has a collegiate team that they sponsor for the summer to play these events. collegiate players must enter as amateurs and can only accept expenses as prize money. a good # of players in any futures event are either between high school and college or already in college.

Entrants are accepted 1st on ranking, but for most events, you can get in to qualifying if you sign up early enough.

you have to sign in the day before qualies. If you look at the tournies listing it will tell you where to sign in and at what time. From there its done by the rankings. Its not a first come first serve deal.
