The instructions on the MyJH Software page for creating an account and getting Matlab installed are a little confusing, and the process was totally overhauled in Summer 2023. Hopefully this illustrated version will clarify things for new users or those who are used to the old process.
First, create a profile at https://mathworks.com/accesslogin/createProfile.do. For email address be sure to use your JHED@jh.edu as the account login. This will get you redirected to the familiar JHU / Microsoft login system. Anywhere you are prompted in Mathworks or Matlab systems, use your JHED@jh.edu login. (If in the past you had a separate Mathworks account, you should from now on use your JHED to log in.)
Then sign in through your University’s website:
You then can go into your account and download the installer. If you are presented multiple options, you want to pick MATLAB (Individual).
While running the installer you will be asked for your Mathworks account. Once again, you want to use YOURJHED@jh.edu to connect to Mathworks and get the list of licenses you have access to.
You accept the license agreement and hit Next. Pick the MATLAB (Individual) license option and hit next again. You do not need an activation key.
This next part doesn’t make sense but works. Instead of typing in your YOURJHED@jh.edu on the next screen, you MUST use the email address you saw on the download page to confirm the user.
After this point, the installation is just a matter of taking the default options and is very straightforward.
