UC San Diego Esri License Renewal Dates

ArcGIS License renewal notifications and dates 1/31 and 3/1

  1. Campus renews our Esri license annually. Maryam Sarkhoush (Campus ITS) renews the license to ensure minimal disruption over the renewal date. All users are likely to receive message noting the license renewal. Unfortunately, we cannot turn it off. If you encounter any issues, please create a support ticket with the ITS Service Desk.
    1. June 30 is UC San Diego’s annual renewal date for ArcGIS Online. This date applies to ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro, StoryMaps, Dashboards, or any of the other web-based applications. This is also now the renewal date for desktop-based applications such as ArcGIS Desktop + extensions and any product that’s connects to the campus license server and ArcGIS Enterprise .If you use any of these platforms, you should NOT experience any interruptions.
      1. (How to check if I have an Esri product connected to the Campus License).
      2. Individuals who have a single-use license should request another one using Software Request Form, noting that the request is for after the new license is available. This includes students/classes who requested licenses at the start of the winter 2021 quarter.
      3. Campus based machines (CloudLabs, Data & GIS Labs and any physical classrooms) will have their licenses updated automatically.
      4. Students using the EVA-license codes (now depreciated) not be affected by these dates. EVA codes timeout one year from when the codes were activated.

How to check if your Esri License times out with the Campus renewal dates

  1. Search for on your desktop and open:  ArcGIS Administrator

  2.  Click Yes to the pop-up: "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?"

  3. Click Desktop to see if you are using the UCSD License Manager. For concurrent use, you will see the license manager listed. If you have a Single Use license you will not see anything set in the License Manger. Single Use users will need to continue to the next step to check their license expiration date. 

  4. To view your license expiration dates, click on Availability. If your licenses expire on 3/2, then you are most likely connected with the UC San Diego Esri License and will need to request a new license code. 

  5. For either concurrent use or single use, you can request a new ArcGIS license using the following Software License Request form.
