Dog Days Fee Deferment

The Dog Days fee for the Summer 2024 orientations will be $70 for all students. Students who have a completed FAFSA and Financial Aid file with Financial Aid will automatically be screened to see if you are eligible for a fee deferment. There is no separate application process, it is automatic.

Dog Days: New Student Orientation allows eligible students the opportunity to defer the payment for their Dog Days: New Student Orientation until September instead of the earlier June 1st deadline. Students who are approved for the deferment must still pay for their orientation. The deferment is an extension of the deadline. There are no fee waivers. To be eligible students must:

  1. Have a completed FAFSA or Dream Act Application on file with the Financial Aid office at Fresno State. In addition to a completed FAFSA/ Dream Act Application, students should also have all additional supporting paperwork turned in to Financial Aid.
  2. Have a calculated Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 500 or less.
  3. Select "yes", if eligible, when you make your Dog Days reservation. 

If you select "no" you will not be able to go back and change your selection. You must select "yes" the first time, if eligible. If you are not eligible you will not receive the option to select "yes" or "no". If you believe you should be eligible for a fee deferment, please click the image below.


In order to receive the Dog Days Fee Deferment, students must register for an orientation session and request the fee deferment through the Dog Days reservation system. A DDD positive indicator will appear on your Student Center if you select the fee deferment option. 

There are NO refunds for Dog Days student or guest fees.

For additional questions contact the Dog Days Office at (559) 278-4885 during normal business hours.

The Dog Days reservation system for the Fall 2024 semester will open on March 15, 2024.
