SAS 9.3 is available to ISU students on a Terminal Server farm for our labs (see machine names below). The farm is open to any student enrolled at ISU who is on campus (or off campus with a VPN connection). Another Terminal Server (sas.stat.iastate.edu) is available off campus without a VPN connection.
