  • MATLAB Mobile on MathWorks Cloud
  • Online training with the free MATLAB Onramp course through MATLAB Academy

Renewal Benefits

  • Product updates through twice-yearly releases

    Each release includes, on average, 500 new features across all products. Access new product features and new product offerings through releases twice a year. You can increase your effectiveness by being the first to learn about and use new product features.

  • Worldwide technical support

    Student and home licenses get support for installation and activation, but otherwise should use online support resources, including MATLAB Answers.

  • Access to MATLAB Mobile on MathWorks Cloud

    Run MATLAB Mobile on MathWorks Cloud from your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can upload your MATLAB files and data and store them in the cloud for use on MATLAB Mobile wherever you are.

  • Prerelease and beta versions

    Receive early versions of new products and major updates so you can try new features and guide technology decisions for your organization. (Not available for student and home licenses.)
