UP students play a significant role in fulfilling the University’s mandate as agents of national development. As an Iskolar ng Bayan, all UP students are entitled to support through subsidies provided by the National government. This is granted through discounts on tuition and other school fees. Below are the financial assistance programs of the University:
The Socialized Tuition (ST) System provides tuition discount at rates that are based on the assessment of the paying capacity of the household to which a student belongs. This assessment looks at the income as well as the socio-economic characteristics of the household.
The UP Scholarship Programs are envisioned to honor and encourage outstanding academic achievement or talent, help academically qualified but financially needy students, and encourage enrollment in particular academic programs which are needed by our country

Students may supplement their tuition, living and book subsidies as well as transportation and lodging allowances by working as student assistants. Research projects and similar academic activities may also require the services of student assistants. However, priority is given to students with the required academic background and qualifications such as specific course and skills. Graduate student assistantships are available to graduate students who show satisfactory academic work.
