Student SAS Distribution Policy Changed

By Dr. Philip Baczewski, Director of  Academic Computing and User Services

As of the end of the Spring 2008 semester, on May 12, 2008, Academic Computing and User Services will no longer distribute SAS to students via the UNT Bookstore. Students who wish to acquire SAS to complete class assignments are recommended to purchase the SAS Learning Edition which is available via e-Academy, where the SAS Learning Edition for Students is available for $60. More information can be found at the SAS Learning Edition webpage.

Students who require SAS to complete sponsored or guided research projects may contact the ACS Research and Statistical Support (RSS) staff. Students will need to provide the name and e-mail address of a faculty sponsor who can verify that SAS is required for their research activities. Once verification has been received, students can schedule a meeting time with RSS staff to receive media and instructions for installing SAS.

Note that "SAS 9.1.3 SP4 does NOT support the editions targeted at the consumer market. These editions include Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Home Basic."
ACS RSS also will not support installation of SAS on Home editions of Windows Vista as long as SAS maintains this same policy. Students who require support from RSS staff may make a request via the weblink on the RSS webpage.
