SPSS is a statistical software package used at St. Olaf College.

Installation Types

There are two options to choose from when installing SPSS:

A network installation uses a license server on the St. Olaf network to authorize use of SPSS. 
•    Requires connection to the St. Olaf network, either on campus or via VPN. 
•    Available for all campus computers.

A site license installation requires one time authorization from SPSS after installation. 
•    Suitable for computers that are not always connected to the St. Olaf network.
