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 the Dept's financial clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org). Make sure that you email in your receipt and the message saying that you have passed the exam.
