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, go to Link< My Account with a License>, enter your Activation Key or License Number, and click "Link License."


Does your university provide MATLAB to students? If not then you will need to purchase a MATLAB Student license. (Often the MATLAB Student Suite is a better bargin, but that depends on what you will use MATLAB for.)
My university has Matlab on their computers and the students use as me I use today at my university; I just needed for solving assignments...
There are different kinds of MATLAB licenses. One of the kinds available for Academic use is node-locked for use in a laboratory of computers. Those licenses are locked to the individual computer, but permit any one person at a time to use the license.
Some universities use a Total Academic Headcount license. Those are academic licenses but students are permitted to use them. The university IT would control activating those licenses.
