WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COLLEGE AND A UNIVERSITY?

As students or their parents begin to explore their postsecondary education options, they may begin to wonder about the difference between colleges and universities. Many people assume that college refers to a private institution and a university refers to a state-funded school. Other people may think that a university provides a better education than a college. In reality, the difference between a college and a university is much more difficult to define.
