Academic license request
The use use of this license generator is deprecated. We are no longer providing any support for issues involving academic licenses. For full details, please see this announcement. However, note that:
- No license key is required to use CVX with the free solvers SDPT3 and SeDumi.
- Academic licenses for Mosek and Gurobi can be obtained from their respective vendors. Once you have properly installed those licenses, the latest versions CVX will work with them as well.
Again, please see this announcement for more details.
To use CVX with commercial solvers such as Gurobi or MOSEK, a CVX Professional license key is required. (No key is required to use CVX with SeDuMi and SDPT3.) Academic users may obtain a license key at no charge by completing the form below.
Each license is tied to a single academic email address, and can be associated initially with a single username and up to two host IDs. You may add one additional username (for a total of two) or additional host IDs (up to a total of four) using the “Add a host ID or username…” option below.
Important note: we raised the host ID limit from 2 to 4 to handle cases when your host ID changes; say, when you obtain a new computer. We are not able to respond to requests to remove host IDs from your license if you exhaust this limit. Thus we do not suggest depending upon being able to use the license on four computers simultaneously.
Licenses expire after one year, but can be renewed as long as you retain your academic affiliation.
Academic licenses keys are to be used for educational and research purposes only—commercial use is not permitted, including consulting. (Gurobi and MOSEK have the same restriction.)
