This category groups together main articles regarding the nine institutions generally categorized as "Colonial Colleges" in the United States of America. These nine universities were founded and chartered as institutions of higher education before the American colonies' independence from the Great Britain in 1776 and the ensuing Revolutionary War (1775-1783). This category does not include other institutions that—while their founding may date from before the Revolution—were not chartered as colleges or permitted to grant degrees before 1776. For more information, see Colonial colleges.
