The Student Assistantship and Graduate Assistantship (SAGA) Program is a financial assistance program for UPLB students who render community service and work related to their course. With this program, we can provide a glimpse of the University's work and an opportunity to share practical work experiences with students related to their study and career interest.

The SAGA Program provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work on and off-campus while pursuing their studies at the University. Students who participate as SAGAs are granted additional financial assistance to help pay education expenses. Aside from the compensation, students under the SAGA Program are able to gain work experience that could further hone them for employment, entrepreneurship, and even community service after they leave the university.

The University, on the other hand, is able to engage the students in fulfilling its academic and operational functions.

There is no employer-employee relationship between UP and SAGAs. Nevertheless, the University is committed to policies for the elimination of child labor and forced labor. UP will not tolerate any form of abuse or exploitation.
