SAS Site License Information
Purchasing and License Period
Licenses for the August 2013 to 2014 period are now available. Regardless of when you make your purchase, the current available SAS license will expire on August 31, 2014.
This page, the License Distribution Rules page, and the SAS FAQs all contain detailed information on using and licensing SAS from CUMC IT.
- The license period is fixed by SAS and cannot be pro–rated; the program will not run after the license has expired. If you would like to receive an entire year’s usage, you must wait until new licenses are available to place your order.
- You must verify SAS version compatibility with your computer(s) prior to ordering. Please see below for more information.
- SAS orders cannot be refunded for any reason once the online form has been submitted. If you have any questions contact us prior to submitting a license request.

1SAS/ACCESS Interfaces are for Aster, MySQL, DB2, Greenplum, Netezza, ODBC, Oracle, PC Files, SYBASE, SYBASE IQ, Teradata and OLE DB.
Anyone running an earlier version than what we currently offer must upgrade; this means you must purchase a license and installation kit for the upgrade version.
The CUMC IT Service Desk provides this license as a service to the Columbia University Medical Center community. Potential licensees should refer to the rules regarding licensing at CUMC. Whenever possible, the Service Desk will answer questions about the installation and use of SAS. However the licensee is responsible for the installation and for understanding and maintaining his/her own hardware and operating system.
Please contact SAS technical support directly with any issues or questions regarding your software.
