Guests and Parents

Our Guest Program is designed to help parents learn as much as possible about the University so they will be in a better position to encourage and support their student while he/she is pursuing a degree at Fresno State.

During orientation, parents will learn about academic requirements for students to get their degree and the various programs and services that are offered to students (many of which are free to use). Come learn how students can succeed at Fresno State and take advantage of all we have to offer!

Students who wish to meet with Financial Aid should plan to arrive early to meet with them prior to their scheduled DOG DAY. During the summer university offices open at 7:00am.

The following schedule is a tentative student schedule. The guest schedule is separate from the student schedule. Guests who attend DOG DAYS will be separated from their student for portions of the day.
