California State Colleges ("Cal States" and "CSU's")

California has two systems of publicly funded, four-year universities. The first is the state college system.
•Cal States are a little cheaper than UC's
Their GPA and test score requirements are lower than UC's, although the classes you have to take to be eligible are pretty much the same. A few top Cal States can be just as hard to get into as a UC, though
•They tend to be fairly "hands on" and oriented towards preparing you for a career
You can earn a Bachelor's Degree (BA or BS), which is a four-year degree and what most people mean when they talk about a college degree
•You can also earn a Master's Degree (MA or MS) in many fields from a Cal State, as well as some professional certifications such as a teacher's credential

University of California ("UC's")

The other public university system in California is the University of California system.
•UC's cost a little more than Cal States but are still typically much cheaper than private schools
Entrance requirements such as for GPA, test scores, and activities are high and can be extremely high for top UC's
UC's tend to emphasize research and theory. Many UC professors are among the top researchers in their field in the world
You can earn a Bachelor's Degree (BA or BS), which is a four-year degree
• You can also earn a Master's Degree (MA or MS) or a Doctorate (Ph.d) at a UC as well as some professional certifications such as a teacher's credential

Private Colleges

Private colleges are any institution of higher education that is not publicly funded. This can range from online schools to art or culinary schools all the way up to world-class universities that are the equal of any UC.
• Generally cost more than public colleges and universities
• May have enough financial aid to make actual cost of attendance competitive with public schools
• Some offer only job training or certificates while others offer bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees
• Entrance requirements may be on par with public institutions or may be easier or even tougher than some public universities
• May be dedicated to a certain field of study or training, or they may be affiliated with a specific religion
