Eligibility

LabVIEW is currently licensed for institutional use only. The software may be purchased by Cornell University staff and faculty via interdepartmental charge, and can be installed onto institution-owned machines.

Purchase a License

Our LabVIEW license runs from July 14 through July 13 of the following calendar year. All LabVIEW licenses expire on the same date, regardless of the date of initial purchase. We are not able to offer prorated pricing.

LabVIEW may be ordered at either the individual user level or the department level. A department license is a site license which will cover all computer systems within the department for one annual fee. If you do not see your department in the table below, and don't know whether your department participates in LabVIEW licensing, please contact cusoftware@cornell.edu and we will investigate.

To order, visit licensing.store.cornell.edu
