The following instructions apply to Standard and Academic Use Licenses.
Requirements to link to a license:
If you do not have the Activation Key or License Number, contact your professor/instructor or License Administrator.
After you have obtained your Activation Key or License Number, click here. Enter your Activation Key or License Number, and click "Link License."

In order to do that, I would have to create a new company, and buy full-price commercial licenses, and hire you as staff (paying you at least $US 12 per hour plus holiday pay plus sick pay plus employment insurance plus having to track Goods and Services Tax). It would cost me at least $US 15000 to do this, excluding hardware and operating system costs and corporate registration costs and costs for auditors) . I would not be able to take any tax deductions on this unless I could prove that I had a reasonable expectation that the company would make a profit within 3 years.
On the other hand, if you purchase a Student Suite license, the cost to you would be $US 100.

A MATLAB license is required in order to use the software. You can look into purchasing a license at this page:

And I can't buy a student licence.

  • To link this license to your MathWorks Account, you must have the Activation Key. You may have received the Activation Key from the Administrator of the license.
