SAS is a command-driven software package used for statistical analysis and data visualization. It is available only for Windows operating systems. It is arguably one of the most widely used statistical software packages in both industry and academia.
As of January 2017, Kent State uses SAS 9.4. Note that SAS is only compatible with Windows operating systems.
If you are a Mac user and are enrolled in a course that uses SAS, your professor may instruct you to install SAS University Edition. This version of SAS is free, and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. However, it requires an internet connection to use, and may be missing some of the capabilities of the "full" version of SAS.
Kent State University maintains a university-wide, limited seat license for SAS. All currently-employed Faculty and Staff, as well as currently-enrolled Students are eligible. Information Services currently distributes SAS 9.4 software and licenses. SAS licenses must be renewed yearly. Note that SAS is only available for Windows operating systems.
Please contact your local support person to receive a copy of the software or to renew your existing license.
Visit software.kent.edu to download your copy/license.
Alternatively, you can bring your computer to the Tech Desk locations in the Tri-Towers Rotunda or the College of Business to have SAS installed.
