Can somebody explain to me how the college works in the educational system?

I'll try to explain me better. I'm studying Computer Science in Padua (Italy), that career here is three years long. I'd like to move to USA and I was asking myself if I should go to a college or to a university to convalidate the courses I've already done. In USA, people has to study in a college before getting the university?? Colleges and Universities have both the same careers? What of those two titles has more importance?
I'll appreciate any kind of help. Thanks

Answer on Can somebody explain to me how the college works in the educational system?

Universities are more prestigious than colleges in the United states. 'Ivy league' schools tend to be called universities (NYU, Harvard, Yale, Princeton etc) and these are the schools that are very hard to get into, and are very important. You can study a subject in depth there, like computer science, or math, or literature.

Colleges, especially community colleges tend to be less prestigious, and the courses are more geared towards specific careers like nursing, early childhood education, and paralegal work.

Try applying to a university that will allow you to transfer some of the credits that you earned in Padua. You don't have to go to college first.

Good luck!
