Questions about Computer Information Technology?

Hey guys, I have a few questions that needs to be clarified about CIT.

Is Computer Information Technology and Information Technology the same thing?

What are the education requirements for CIT? (I need this so I can search for classes that have it in colleges around my area).

Also I have a question about how transferring work, I know this varies between college to college but I would like to know, if I can go to a Community College and take the courses there to enter into the CIT program at some University then transfer over to that University with my credits?

I know Universities have a required GPA that you need to get in High School in order for you to attend it but would my GPA in High School still affect my ability to transfer to a University if I were to go to a Community College instead?

I am 17 and currently trying to have some sort of idea of what I am going to do.

Thanks a bunch!

    I was looking into Devry, but I have some concerns. I read a lot of negative reviews about them on line; however, the community college I currently attend has a Devry graduate as a part time teacher. He said good things about the institution, but he is the only one I have ever heard say good stuff, the reviews on line are all bad. I know Devry has been around for a really long time so the must be doing something rite. Anyone out there ever been to evry that can give me any feed back. I am looking to get into networking, and I am in southern California. Any help will be appreciated. thanks.
