SAS® Software for the University

newsletter-sas-iconIn addition to our site license for the SAS Education Analytical Suite, we now offer two more options to professors and students at no additional cost: SAS University Edition and SAS OnDemand for Academics. A chart comparing the three software options is posted on the SAS Software for Academia Website.

SAS University Edition runs on Mac, Linux, or Windows, and includes the following libraries: SAS Studio, Base SAS, SAS/STAT, SAS/IML, and SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files. You will be asked to create a SAS profile or log in if you already have one. In addition to the SAS software download, you will also need to download virtualization software such as Oracle’s VirtualBox. Once you have the software on your computer, you can use it even if your machine is not connected to the Internet. For instructions on downloading VirtualBox and SAS University Edition, go to the SAS University Edition Download Website.

SAS OnDemand for Academics runs on Mac, Linux, or Windows, as well as any iOS 6+ device that is connected to the Internet. It includes the same extensive set of libraries that are included in our site license with the SAS Education Analytical Suite. You will also be asked to create a SAS profile or log in if you already have one, but you will not have to download any software. For more information and instructions, go to the ITS SAS OnDemand for Academics Website.

For assistance with any of the SAS versions, please call Christian Vye at 874-2966 or his graduate assistant at 874-2815.
