SAS Statistical Analysis Software

The Instructional Technology Lab (ITL) distributes the Statistical Analysis System software (SAS) to GW faculty members, students, and staff for academic and research purposes.


To receive a copy of SAS, you can do one of the following:

  • submit the online license agreement form and receive a link to the SAS installer via GW email. You MUST use your GW email address.

SAS can only be installed on a Windows OS. To install SAS on a Mac OS, users need to do a Windows installation using Boot Camp or additional software like VMware. The ITL does not support this additional software.

SAS is also available on all Windows computers in Gelman and Eckles libraries and some classroom and lab computers.

License Renewal

The license for SAS expires on December 15th each year and has a 90-day grace period for renewal. A license renewal file can be emailed to your GW email address after a new license agreement form is submitted.


For assistance with the installation of SAS, you can contact the ITL Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Please note that installation can take an hour or more.
