SAS® Academic Software

Free and low-cost software options for the academic community.

SAS keeps me current in a field that changes every day. And it gives my students a leg up when they go into the workforce because they can make decisions from a data warehousing or data mining perspective or a data analysis and data quality perspective that they wouldn't have gotten from a regular database class. Fay Cobb Payton, PhD Associate Professor of Information Technology North Carolina State University
