In common usage, "going to college" simply means attending school for an undergraduate degree, whether it's from an institution recognized as a college or a university. When it comes to referring to the level of education, college is the term more used to be synonymous to tertiary or higher education.
A student who is or has studied her undergraduate degree at either an institution with college or university in its name is considered to be going to or have gone to college. The term "university" is used to describe higher-education institutions offering locally conferred degrees.
Institutions offering diplomas are called " polytechnics ", while other institutions are often referred to as "institutes" and so forth.
