WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COLLEGE AND A UNIVERSITY?

English

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.
WHAT IS A COLLEGE?
A college is a smaller institution that typically offers undergraduate degrees. Some colleges, such as community colleges and junior colleges, may offer only two-year degrees. Most colleges offer bachelor’s degrees, and some colleges also have associate degrees.
