SAS for Windows

SAS Software

To obtain SAS software, bring a new 32 GIG flash drive to the OIT Help Desk (2nd floor of the UCC Building). Before installing SAS, please read the installation instructions. These are downloaded from GoWMU in the Software Downloads channel. Faculty can also obtain SAS from their college technology office.

The SAS System is licensed on an annual basis. Licenses are valid through June 30 of the current fiscal year with a 45 day grace period. 

Versions 9.3 and 9.4 are currently supported. If you have an older version, please upgrade.

  1. Please read the install instructions before attempting an install.
  2. Turn off virus checking software.
  3. Depending on when you obtain SAS, the current license file may or may not be included on the SAS install media. If it is not the install media, then download the current file from GoWMU, in Software Downloads channel.

For license renewals
