Here are a couple of legal definitions of college: http://thelawdictionary.org/college/ http://definitions.uslegal.com/c/college/. I suppose any institutions that don't meet these critera are merely schools. Here's some information on accreditation as well: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/finaid/accred/index.html. Did you have a particular institution in mind?
In person: Make an appointment with a Research Librarian.
