UP said that to maintain its high standard of education and to maximize its limited resources, they need to limit slots for freshman admission to each campus and to its various degree programs.

The UPCAT is consists of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (English and Filipino), Science, Math and Reading Comprehension (English and Filipino). Standardized scores on these subtests are combined with the weighted average of final grades in the first three years of high school to determine qualification into UP. Moreover, to implement the policy of democratization to make the UP studentry more representative of the nation’s population, socio-economic and geographic considerations are factored in the selection of campus qualifiers.

Passers of UPCAT are screened for acceptance into one of the degree programs they chose. Different grade predictors are used for different programs. Campus qualifiers are ranked according to the degree program predictor. Top-ranking qualifiers are accepted according to the number of slots available for that program.

UP is highly committed to admitting the best students and providing increased access to quality higher education. All UP students are provided partial tuition subsidies by government appropriations, but additionally the University also has a Socialized Tuition System (STS) which provides possible tuition discounts and/or additional financial assistance for qualified students in the form of monthly subsidies for living and travel expenses and a semestral book allowance. Students may also avail of tuition loans and short-term loans from the Student Loan Board.

UP Oblation Scholarship is given to the top fifty UPCAT qualifiers.The benefits include free tuition, miscellaneous and laboratory fees, a semestral book subsidy and a monthly incentive and transportation allowance. Recipients may enjoy the UP Oblation Scholarship throughout the normal length of time required to finish their chosen degree program, provided they maintain the required grade point average. For those in the accelerated medical program (INTARMED), however, only the first four years are covered by this grant.
