An educational site license is a subscription licensing program for higher educational institutions. It is a simple way to get SAS Software licenses to faculty and staff of the University (“Employees”). The cost of the educational site license is based on a fixed number of licenses.
The licensed SAS Software can be installed on any computer owned by the University at no cost, for use by an Employee for classroom instruction and coursework directly related to the University’s degree requirements and non-commercial research activities*.
