SensusAccess Online Conversion Tool

Convert documents with SensusAccess

SensusAccess is an online conversion tool that allows you to convert documents from one file type to another.

The most common example is uploading a PDF and then outputting a Word document — but there are many more choices.

SensusAccess is free to anyone with an SPU email address.

How to use SensusAccess

Go to the SensusAccess form to convert a file. Once you complete the process, the converted file will be sent to your SPU email account.
