I always heard that a University has a grad school (masters or PhD) while a college does not.

University and College can be used interchangeably. Meaning 4 year school.
You'll hear people use College in reference to community college. Which offers certificates and 2-year degrees.
But there are some prestigious schools with College in the name. Like Vassar and Emerson College. They are private and offer bachelor degrees.
Certificate- a paper saying you took a couple of classes in that field. You can't do too much with a certificate in terms of finding employment that pays well.
Associates Degree- 2-year degree in that field.
Bachelors Degree- 4-year degree. An undergraduate degree. You need AT LEAST this in order to find a decent job after school.
Masters Degree- 2-3 more years of school. This is a professional degree. You'll can make more money with one of these versus having just a bachelors.
PhD- Doctor of Philosophy degree. This is the creme de la creme. You use the title PhD after your name (Morgan Davis, PhD). You should be respectfully referred to as Doctor.
*Ideally*, you want to go to a 4 year university and at least earn a bachelors. You major/field of work you want to go into will determine if you have to go further.
You want to be a graphics designer? You can get away with just a bachelors.
Want to work in business? You need an MBA to even get a job at a well paying company.
Want to be a psychiatrist/therapist? You need a PhD

It depends on the career you are looking for. I would say Junior/community college are great for beginners nursing programs and taking general courses before proceeding to the expensive University. Just check both before committing.
