SAS Certification

The department encourages both undergraduate majors and graduate students to develop computing skills that can make them more valuable in the workplace.  SAS offers a certification program where students can receive a certification credential by passing an exam.  While we are not affiliated with SAS in any way, we recognize the potential value that such a credential may have to students as they seek jobs.  We therefore offer to reimburse the student's discounted cost of one passed SAS certification exam (currently $90) for each undergraduate major and graduate student in one of the department's programs.  

Details on the entire SAS certification program can be found here: http://support.sas.com/certify/index.html.  We do not run this program. Details on scheduling an exam can be found through the same website.  Be sure to request an academic 50% discount, because that is the amount that we will reimburse. 

To arrange for reimbursement please contact Charlene Bradbury (stat_usec_fincl@sfu.ca), our department's financial clerk.  Make sure that you bring a receipt (original) and the message saying that you have passed the exam.
