  2. Click on the link “Create Account”, located at the upper right-hand corner of the page.
  3. On the create account page, complete all required fields (Note: Make sure you enter your Georgetown e-mail address.) Click “Continue” when you’re done.
  4. On the “Customization Information” page, complete fields as appropriate. (For the question on how you plan to use the software, select “Academic Use” from the drop-down list.)
  5. Click “Continue”. 
    A page will be displayed with steps you’ll need to perform (check for e-mail from MATLAB, click on the link in the e-mail) so that your e-mail address can be verified. Important: Do not close this window until you’ve completed these steps. 
  6. Click “Continue” after you’ve completed the steps to verify your e-mail address. You will be returned to the MathWorks home page, and will be logged in to your new MathWorks account.
