For lab (network license) installations:
Lab installations of MATLAB automatically remain active via our central license server. If you receive licensing related errors on your lab installation of MATLAB, please make sure you are either connected to the campus network or the UMBC VPN.
For stand-alone installations:
Stand-alone installations of MATLAB will need to be reactivated with a UMBC MathWorks account once per year via a MathWorks account (your UMBC MathWorks account is created in steps 1- 4 in the stand-alone installation instructions). To re-activate a stand-alone install of MATLAB, please follow the instructions below (NOTE: If the license has already expired, skip step 2 and then proceed directly to step 3):
1. Open MATLAB.
2. Go to the Help Menu and then select Licensing.
3. Click on Activate Software.
4. Select Activate using Internet.
5. Restart MATLAB for it to recognize the updated license.
