How to obtain a license of Minitab

UWM’s Minitab license has changed to a “Named-user licensing” model. Each user of Minitab must now be assigned a license to use the software.

This change will allow Minitab users to use the software on both UWM computers and personal computers. Previously, Minitab could only be used on UWM computers. 

Any student or employee who is NOT assigned a license will NOT be able to use Minitab.

How to get access to Minitab:

For UWM Faculty/Instructors:

  1. To request a license of Minitab, login to the UWM Software Shop and search for the Minitab product. Once you have completed the purchasing process for Minitab, we’ll get a notification and add your UWM email to the University’s Minitab Portal License (Within 1-2 business days).
  2. Go to your UWM email and search for an email from "Minitab Customer Support <>" (See image below for example)

*If you're a CEAS or L&S instructor and need your students to have access to Minitab please send an email to containing your class roster emails in a spreadsheet (CSV file).
