Course Cancellation Policy

Early registration is recommended because classes fill quickly. A discount is available for early registration.

The SAS cancellation policy covers courses and conferences. If you are unable to attend the event for which you registered, please inform SAS as soon as possible. Fees are fully refundable if notification is received by phone, mail, or e-mail at least 8 calendar days prior to the scheduled start date of an event; after that (7 calendar days or less), the full event fee will be charged. Substitutions (name changes) are accepted at any time prior to the event. Transfers are accepted up to 24 hours before the event start date with a maximum of one transfer allowed per original transaction.

SAS Institute reserves the right to cancel course dates due to insufficient enrollment. Students will be notified of cancellations within 7 days of the course start date. If a course is cancelled for any reason, SAS will return prepaid registration fees. SAS is not responsible for airline penalties related to the cancellation of SAS courses or events. Please be aware of the airline restrictions regarding nonrefundable airline tickets when purchasing an airline ticket.

What Fees Cover

Registration fees cover all course materials and computer time for lecture/workshop courses.

Continuing Education Units

When you successfully complete SAS instructor-based training courses, you earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The CEU, a nationally recognized unit of measurement for continuing education courses, is defined as "10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction."

CEUs give you units of measurement for professional development that can be accumulated and documented.

SAS awards 0.6 CEU units for each full day of classroom or Live Web training or 0.3 CEU units for each half-day Live Web session; therefore, for a training class running three full days or a Live Web course running 6 half-day sessions, you earn 1.8 CEUs.

Special Needs

If you have a disability requiring a reasonable accommodation, please send SAS a description (space is provided on the online registration form) of that accommodation along with your advance registration at least ten working days before the course begins.
