Faculty/Staff Use

To install the latest version of Mathematica campus machine, please use the Software Center.

Home Use Program

Student Home Use

A student copy of Mathematica for home use can be downloaded directly from the Wolfram User Portal, after a Wolfram ID is created.

To create a Wolfram ID:

  1. Go to the Wolfram User Portal and click "Create Account"
  2. Fill out form using your student (....@student.wpunj.edu) email address, and click "Create Wolfram ID"
  3. Check your email and click the link to validate your Wolfram ID

To request the Mathematica download and key:

  1. Fill out the Wolfram Activation Key Request Form
  2. Click the "Product Summary page" link to access your license
  3. Click "Get Downloads" and select "Download" next to your platform
  4. Run the installer on your machine, and enter Activation Key at prompt

To request access to and use Mathematica|Online (through August 15th 2020)

  1. After creating a Wolfram ID (see above)
  2. Login with your Wolfram ID and fill out the Wolfram Mathematica Onlin Request Form
  3. Check your email and click the link to validate your access
  4. Then from...
    1. a laptop or computer, visit https://mathematica.wolframcloud.com and log-in.
    2. a mobile device, download the free Wolfram Cloud app from your app store and log-in.

Faculty/Staff Home Use

To request a Home Use license for Wolfram Mathematica, WPU Faculty and Staff must complete a request form and submit it directly to Wolfram.

  1. Access the Site Home-Use Mathematica License Request Form
  2. The "Site Activation Key" field will already be filled. Expand image below to see an example.
  3. The radio button should already be filled in for "a New home-use license." under the question "What are you requesting?"
  4. Click "Continue"
  5. Complete the License Request Form and Read the User Agreement. NOTE: The method of delivery for WPU is "Download: Send it to me at the email address I specify (you will be asked for your email address later)"
  6. Fill out the required fields for Contact Information, Work Address and Home Address.
  7. For Proof of Eligibility, please select the first option "My status can be verified via our online staff directory at the following URL:" and copy the URL to our WPUNJ Faculty and Staff Directory: https://wpconnect.wpunj.edu/directories/staff-directory.cfm
  8. Click Submit
  9. Check your email to confirm your request and receive your download
