National Instruments now offers Student Install Options for most teaching Academic Site Licenses (ASL) to give students access to the same software used in the laboratory. Student installs can be included with any “Teaching Only” and “Teaching and Research” ASL contract. However, any “Research Only” ASL will not include student installs.With the Student Install Option serial number, students will be able to download NI academic software and activate through the NI Activation Wizard. The Student Install license will automatically expire after one year. If you want to renew the license or haven't received the new one, please contact us.
If you are the site administrator and do not yet have student install added to your existing ASL contract, please contact either your sales representative or NI Technical Support to request adding the student install option to your ASL. You can contact National Instruments at 1 (800) 531-5066.
If you are a student and are looking to download software or activate your student install option, contact your IT Help Desk or Service Desk. Ask them for the Student Install serial number (activation code) and use it to activate NI software. Your IT staff may need to contact NI if they can’t find the serial number or if they aren’t sure whether they have an ASL. Our support team cannot give these activation codes directly to students.
