With graduation season here I thought it would be good to go over what makes a university a university and a college a college. I always thought it had to do with the size of the student body, but it’s not that at all.
The biggest distinction is that the kind of degrees and programs offered are much different.
A University means it’s a larger institution which offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. A College often means community colleges, technical schools, and liberal arts.
Congrats and good luck to all the 2022 grads!
