Obtaining and Installing Mathematica 8 Licenses - Windows
System requirements: Windows
The instructions on this page are for university owned machines only that have "Property of UT Arlington" asset tags, also referred to as UTA assets in this document. These are typical faculty/staff office computers.
How to Get:
To install Mathematica on personally owned faculty machines you will need to fill out the Wolfram's Staff Home Use Mathematica License form located at http://www.wolfram.com/siteinfo/homeuse/.
To process the home-use license three conditions must be met:
1) Home-use license is for faculty only. Faculty may include professors, associate professors, assistant professors, instructors, lecturers, teachers, GRAs and GTAs.
2) Software must be requested using a "@uta.edu" or in some cases a "@mavs.uta.edu" email address
3) The software must be for a privately owned computer. Computers owned/provided by UT Arlington are not eligible for the home-use license.
Please contact the OIT Help Desk for the required License Key.
The UT System has arranged to sell student licenses through HiEd Inc for $35.00 per year (January through December). Please see www.hied.com/utarlington more information.
