The Department carries a 50-seat concurrent license for MATLAB and a diverse set of toolboxes. The license carries an active support contract, allowing accessing to new version releases and support. Currently, The MathWorks releases versions twice a year, with a naming convention of YYYYa in the Spring and YYYYb in Fall. E.g. 2008a, 2008b.

Our license allows unlimited installations on LSU-owned machines, but only 50 concurrent users. Under the licensing terms for academic licenses, commercial use is prohibited.


Due to the use of a network-based licensing model, users must have network connectivity to utilize MATLAB.


MATLAB licensing should function without issue from LSU wired and wireless networks.


MATLAB licensing will fail unless the user enables a VPN connection first. The VPN connection functions by essentially placing your machine on the LSU-network as if you were on campus. More information on VPN here
