Who is eligible for a free undergraduate course license?

Our undergraduate course licenses are for professors teaching undergraduate courses only. Professors/instructors must be actively teaching an undergraduate course using Stata at an accredited degree-granting academic institution, and the course must issue credit toward a degree. Professors/instructors should register their course with us and provide proof they are actively teaching Stata.

How can I verify my course to receive the license?

Professors/instructors may submit proof of the course by providing a URL to the university webpage that describes the course, a course syllabus, or other proof of their undergraduate course to receive the license. Submit the information on our license request form or email service@stata.com with additional documentation or questions.

How may I use the course license?

The license is appropriate for teaching and undergraduate coursework. The license is not appropriate for graduate coursework, faculty/staff research, or commercial or government purposes, including commercial or government training programs.

What license will I receive?

Professors/instructors will receive an undergraduate course license, which is a Stata/BE classroom license with one key for multiple activations. The license will be large enough to cover the number of students in the course and will be valid for six months.

When will I receive the license?

Upon registration and approval of your course, you will receive the undergraduate course license either 5–7 business days before the course begins as indicated by the form course start date, or you will receive the license within 1–2 business days of course approval, whichever comes first. You will receive the license activation key via email along with instructions to download the software from stata.com.
