The Michael Dailey Difference

I look forward to working with your family, charting a financially prudent course putting your student in the right college at the right price. As a parent, I understand the stress, frustration and joy of watching a child grow and thrive through a university experience. And, yes, I understand all about the bills.

Every year, the price tag on a college education grows larger, raising the stakes for all involved. As a parent, you cannot afford to make a mistake because the repercussions can damage family budgets and unravel retirement plans.

Understanding the importance of getting it right, I created custom software that weighs all the factors of the college financing equation—from income and debt to retirement and savings.

At College Authority—Connecticut hard data combines with our years of experience. Unlike most financial planners, stock brokers or accountants, we specialize in college financing. This is my only business—helping families find a way to pay for college.

A lifelong resident of Trumbull, CT, and a member of the National Institute of Certified College Planners, I have worked since 1987 to help parents decipher the college funding and financial aid puzzle: financial aid forms, formulas, timelines, and processes.

I believe all parents need effective strategies to pay for college within their budget for every student in the family. It’s just that simple, and we help you get there.

I look forward to working with you and your family.
