Note that the Activation Key you will receive will be valid for 15 calendar days without action by the CU Software office. Within 5 business days of receipt of the key, a representative from CU Software will verify the registration and will extend it through the end of the license period, which ends on 31 July.

Once you get your email from Wolfram with your activation key, activate Mathematica as follows:
  1. Navigate in the toolbar to Mathematica ► About Mathematica.
  2. Click your activation key (just above the "system Information" button) to access the Mathematica activation dialog.
  3. Copy your 13 digit activation key from the Wolfram email and paste it in the appropriate field in the activation dialog
