- If the software asks for an Activation code, use the one found on the Matlab Student page in step 3
- If you get any errors during this process, you will need to contact Mathworks as OIT is unable to offer any support

How do you purchase Matlab toolboxes?
On occasion, a faculty member may require an additional toolbox for research that is not included in the campus license and may request the toolbox be added to the campus license. The following is our current business practice:
- One New Toolbox License – If the faculty requires one new toolbox license, it is recommended that a license of Matlab and all the necessary toolbox licenses be purchased separate from the campus license. New single licenses may not be added to the campus license. The faculty member would be responsible for yearly maintenance costs.
- New Campus Pool of Toolbox Licenses – If new toolboxes are requested to be added to the campus Matlab license, there is a required purchase of no less than ten licenses. A campus license is a community license and cannot be restricted to specific individuals. For this reason, we require a minimum purchase of ten licenses to avoid the chance that all licenses will be used when the requester attempts access. OIT can not guarantee access to any toolbox license. It is also important to understand that because of the time it takes for the approval, ordering and updating of the Matlab licensing server, the timeframe to implement these licenses will take a little longer. The faculty member’s department will be responsible for yearly maintenance costs to be paid to their college.
