    He registered at Florida Southern College but did not make the team

    make
    achieve a place in:
    He registered at Florida Southern College but did not make the team.
    Oxforddictionaries

    That means that he wanted to enter Florida Southern College but was rejected, am I right?

    Re: He registered at Florida Southern College but did not make the team

    What is the context?

    Entering a college and making a sports team for that college are two different things. He was accepted and registered at the school. But he did not qualify for whatever sports team he was trying out for.

    No context, it's a dictionary entry.
    I just thought that being in the 'team' meant being a student of the college in this context

    You only register at a college if you have been accepted.
