Q: When does my MATLAB license expire?

Answer

The are a number of different MATLAB licenses in use at MIT. Please select the category below that best describes your license:

Student MATLAB (https://ist.mit.edu/matlab/all/student)

MATLAB licensing is on the fiscal year schedule (July 1 - June 30), so licenses expire on June 30 every year. (There is a 30-day grace period during renewal, so licenses can be used through July 31.)

Once the maintenance has been renewed on the TAH Campus license, students will want to activate MATLAB again for that updated maintenance period to take affect. The easiest way to accomplish this is to run the activation client that gets installed with MATLAB. You do NOT need to re-install.  You may obtain an updated activation key by clicking on "License Number and Activation Code (certificates required)" on the page https://ist.mit.edu/matlab/all/student

Our MATLAB license requires that student uninstall MATLAB once they lose their student status at MIT (withdraw, graduate, become staff, etc).

Athena MATLAB
