SAS Site Licensed Software

The SAS license available through the Software Site License Program is a one-year subscription license for the period beginning June 1, 2017 and ending May 31, 2018.

Overview

The SAS system is a powerful software package, which serves as an excellent tool for data management and statistical analysis.

The SAS for Windows version provides additional modules (e.g. exploratory graphics with SAS/Insight, data set use with SAS/ASSIST).

Departmental Ordering Process

SAS licenses and installation discs can be found in the Computer Business Services Showcase Catalog in TUmarketplace.  Type SAS into the search field for a listing of available licenses, installation discs and pricing. 

There will be three types of software products:

  • License Only - this option gives end users the option to obtain a license without the software disc.
  • Media Only - this option gives end users the ability to obtain only the software disc without a license. This is ideal for those who are ordering multiple licenses but only require one disc to install the software program.
  • Bundle - this option gives end users the ability to purchase both the license and media at the same time. This is ideal for end users who are ordering the same amount of licenses as they are software discs.

Software Site License Agreements are necessary when purchasing licenses via TUmarketplace. Please attach the signed agreement to your Purchase Requisition as an internal note or email it to software@temple.edu. Failure to submit the agreements will delay the complete processing of your order, including the distribution of your license keys and installation discs.
