Renew MATLAB License


How do I renew my expired MATLAB license?


  1. Open MATLAB (If the license has already expired, the activation client will launch and you can skip the next step)
  2. In Windows, Navigate to Help Menu (Click down arrow button) and select Licensing
  3. In Linux and Mac, Click on Resources, Navigate to Help Menu (Click down arrow button) and select Licensing 
  4. Click on Activate Software
  5. Choose to Activate using Internet
  6. Once reactivated you will need to restart MATLAB before the new license file is recognized

Note: If the installation has already expired, you will be prompted to activate when attempting to launch MATLAB. As long as the activation finishes successfully it will roll over to the new license file once the old one expires. You might continue to see the expiration warning in MATLAB until the old file expires.
