Download SAS® University Edition

How to Download SAS® University Edition

Step 1: Verify that you have a compatible virtualization software package.

Because SAS University Edition is a virtual application (or vApp), you need virtualization software to run it. Compatible virtualization software packages are listed in the table below. If you don't already have compatible virtualization software, get the free Oracle VM VirtualBox (select release 4.3.12*).

Windows
Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.3.12* VMware Player 6.0 or later
OS X
Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.3.12*
VMware Fusion for OS X 6.0
Linux
Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.3.12*
VMware Player for Linux 6.0 or later

* Due to known compatibility issues between SAS University Edition and the most recent releases of Oracle VM VirtualBox, you must install release 4.3.12. We are investigating and will update this page as soon as the issues are resolved. In the meantime, do not accept any updates suggested for VirtualBox. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy SAS University Edition!


Step 2: Get the Quick Start Guide for your virtualization software package. And read it. Really!

There's a lot of useful info in the guide, including step-by-step instructions, so download it, read it, love it.


Step 3: Download SAS® University Edition.

Choose the appropriate download file for your virtualization sofware package. You will then be prompted to:

a. Create or sign in to your SAS profile.
b. Accept the user licensing agreement.
c. Begin the download.

Note: The file is over 1.4GB. Depending on your Internet connection, it might take awhile to download. Grab a snack, call a friend, read a book – it will be done before you know it. And remember – you're getting the world's most powerful analytics software. It's worth the wait!
