Need Help Paying for a Trip?

Campus Recreation is excited to offer a fee waiver for students interested in participating in programming at any of our centers, made possible through a partnership with Amazon. Any current and active fee paying UC Davis student can apply for a fee waiver to enroll in classes at less than the usual cost. More information can be found with the Campus Recreation Fee Waiver Application. If you are interested in obtaining a fee waiver, make sure to fill out the application ASAP. It could take up to 3 weeks for your application to be reviewed. Fee waiver funds can not be used to reimburse you for a trip you have already purchased.
