    What is the difference between a college and a university?

    1) What is the difference between college and university in American English? (Ex: Princeton Uni., Harvard college etc.)
    2) Anyone know how to meet standard to famous universities in the US? Any SAT scores requirements in the past few years, please help me
    3) And do you know what is the difference between PSAT and SAT?

    1)Used to be 'degrees offerred" but now days - just what they choose to be called.
    2) Go to their sites
    3. try PSAT vs. SAT - MSN Encarta

    This question has been asked and answered before. One distinction is that a college can be part of a university, but the reverse cannot be true. Both colleges and universities confer degrees.
