How do I obtain a license?

A limited number of SAS subscriptions are available at the ITS Service Desk at a cost of $200 for one year. The term of the current license is as follows:

  • Teaching and Research exclusive License *
    April 15, 2018 - April 14, 2019
  • Administrative License *
    April 30, 2018 - April 29, 2019

NOTE: There is no cost difference between the licenses, SAS just requires they be tracked seperately for auditing/accounting purposes. Also, both licenses are for 1 year, both licenses have different expiration dates, and are renewed by RIT on the first of the month they will expire.

The user agreement and chargeback form can be downloaded here.

On verification payment of the subscription fee, a request for installation will be filed with the ITS Service Desk. If you are not managed by ITS, your Areas Desktop Support team can perform the installation as needed.

 

SAS License Renewal

The cost for SAS re-activation is also $200 for one year. Previous versions prior to 9.4 are no longer available, however, your IT support team can install 9.4 as necessary.

The user agreement and chargeback form can be downloaded here.

Notes

Teaching & Research
As defined by SAS, software used for purposes of classroom instruction, academic research, and course work primarily related to customer's post-secondary degree requirements. Used by students, faculty, and staff supporting such use.

Admin
As defined by SAS, software used for purposes directly related to customer's operations as a post-secondary degree granting institution. This includes institutional research and any such use related to reporting about the University to the University. Such software may be used by customer's administrative employees (including faculty performing administrative duties) for such administrative purposes.

SAS has chosen to separate licenses by these types of use, recognizing that these two distinct groups have very different software needs that we wish to address separately...with greater benefits being provided to the teaching/research group. This includes free trainer kits and higher education consulting to assist with course design, etc.
