This research was conducted due to complaints from several parents regarding the determination of BSM at SDN Karanganyar 02 which still contains subjectivity in its selection so that some students are less fortunate. SDN Karanganyar 02, once a year always carries out activities related to determining the selection of BSM recipients. With this activity, it is hoped that students who are underprivileged but have fairly good achievements can receive this BSM so that the activities they carry out do not feel burdened with financial needs. The fact is that in institutions there are still many students who do not get BSM, even though according to the requirements these students should be eligible to get BSM. So in the selection that occurs there is a very irrational subjectivity. To solve this problem, the researcher tries to make a solution through an application that applies the Weight Aggregated Sum Product Assessment (WASPAS) method, which is a method of determining with predetermined criteria. The criteria in question are activities, achievements, report cards, parental income, home conditions, and parental dependents. After analyzing and implementing the WASPAS Decision Support System, it was found that the results were detrimental to students where the criteria scores and final determination were lower than some other students, but the SD carried out an assessment by obtaining BSM. To prevent this incident from recurring, WASPAS is very capable of answering objective determinations with the results obtained at 79.88% and the previous subjective determination at 20.12%.
