Dog Days

Dog Days Fee Deferment

The Dog Days fee for the Summer 2022 orientations will be $70 for all students for both in-person and virtual options. 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. 

Dog Days: New Student Orientation allows eligible students the opportunity to defer the payment for their Dog Days: New Student Orientation until Financial Aid disperses in the Fall semester, typically in August. Students eligible 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 zero.
  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".

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.

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

The Dog Days reservation system for the Fall 2022 semester will open on March 15, 2022.
