- In addition to STFAP benefits, qualified students enjoy other scholarships funded by other government agencies and private institutions and individuals, consisting of tuition subsidies and living and book allowances. These scholarships are granted based on both financial need and academic performance of applicants.

The wage rate for undergraduate student assistants is P30 while for graduate student assistant, it is P50 per hour for a maximum of 120 hours per month. Student assistantships (e.g., clerical and courier work) are open to all students. However, priority is given to low-income students.
Research projects and similar academic activities may also hire student assistants. However, priority is given to those with the required academic background and qualifications.
Graduate student assistantships are available to graduate students who show satisfactory academic work. They are paid P50 an hour for services not exceeding 120 hours a month.
- Loans are granted by the University through the Office of Scholarships and Student Services to any bona fide student with no outstanding account with the Office. There are two kinds of loans: tuition loan, covering 70 to 85 per cent of tuition fees, and the short-term emergency loan of three thousand pesos (P3,000.00).
