Since UAAP Season 81, the league has been adopting the FIVB-position based awards.

The statistical points are computed by adding all the Rank Points of each player and multiplying the sum by 10. Games won are also included and multiplied by 30. The grand total is then divided by the number of sets played by the player’s team.

Rank Points are determined by the player’s place in each department, with each rank having corresponding Rank Points.

The cutoff has always been set after the elimination round.
