Ignore MATLAB Expiration Notices

Posted on: March 30th, 2012 by Brian Hopkins

If you’ve been using MATLAB under the University of Mississippi’s Total Academic Headcount license (ie, if you obtained MATLAB by following the instructions in the MyOleMiss portal), you’ve likely been seeing a warning that the current license will expire at the end of March. While technically true, this is a bit misleading, and there is no cause for concern. The license does formally expire each March 31st. However, it then enters a 30-day grace period; the software will work, unrenewed, until April 30th. A renewal purchase is in progress and will be complete next week, well in advance of this cutoff date. Thus, the warnings about the license expiring at the end of March can simply be ignored.
