The SAS License is available free of charge to Texas A&M students. This license allows the student to install it on their personal computer.

Obtaining a Copy of SAS Software

The SAS software is provided as a download.  It is also possible to copy it onto a flash drive or external drive; this will require contacting the Software Center to arrange dropping off the media, and then 2-3 days to copy the software onto your media.  SAS requires at least 33 GB free on the media.

Please fill out the Student SAS Order Form and indicate how you would prefer to receive the software (or, if you only need the renewal codes, choose that option).


Renewing a License

User must get password from the Software Center by filling out another agreement. Re-installation is not required unless the user needs a newer version than the one they currently have.
