Software Licenses for Teaching and Research

The needs of universities vary according to the proposed use of SAS. Please contact SAS to discuss the most appropriate way to license our software for your needs. Briefly, the options are:

SAS OnDemand for Academics  
SAS analytical software is now available free of charge online to academics for teaching all over the world.
Eduserv/Chest Licensing: for UK and Ireland universities ONLY
SAS makes the software available at greatly reduced rates to universities. The SAS/Chest license agreement has created a flexible licensing structure for universities as it enables licensing by department, faculty and campus. Also, a distinction is made between use of the software for Teaching and Research, or for Research only. Follow the link above to view the SAS/Chest Agreement, which includes a tariff of prices.
