I know that this is a bit off topic but I couldn't find a more appropriate section. So I am taking College Algebra this fall semester, I am wondering how difficult it is compared to Intermediate Algebra, which I thought was (for the most part) very easy. Should I be expecting a large difference between the two?

There's no trig in the Blitzer College Algebra book that I remember.

FWIW, parabolas are not trig. Trig is sine, cosine, tangent, pythagorean theorem, polar coordinates, etc.
