If you want to use JMP for administrative use, please submit a request to, otherwise follow these instructions:

  1. Verify your computer meets the system requirements above, and that you will be using JMP for academic purposes.
  2. Make sure your computer is on the Wellesley network (using VPN if off campus, Wellesley Secure if on campus with Wi-Fi).

    1. Connect to the software share on the academicstore server using your Wellesley username and password:
    2. Open the folder containing the installer: facstaffstudents, then JMP Pro
    3. It may take a moment for the folders to appear
    4. Open the 17 folder, then drag the Mac or Windows folder to your computer's desktop
    5. Watch the progress of the download, which will take longer on some computers, as that installer is very large
    6. Didn't get the installer? Try these TIPS

Install JMP 

  1. Having watched the download until it's complete, find the installer in the folder you put on your computer:
    • on a Mac, you're looking for .pkg installer in the Mac folder
    • on a Windows PC, you're looking for Setup.exe (or Setup with a file type of Application in the Windows folder)
  2. Run that installer.  If asked, say Yes, you really want to run this. Accept all the default settings.
  3. After the install completes, launch JMP 
  4. If asked about registering the software, you can say you'll wait to do it later. You never need to do this.
  5. When asked, point JMP to the licensing file using the Open License button:
    point to the .txt file with the very long name in the same folder as the installer on your computer.
  6. If asked about where to save the JMP.PER licensing file, we recommend storing it in your Documents folder, but anywhere on your computer where you won't accidentally erase it is fine.
  7. Once you have confirmed that JMP is working, delete the downloaded license folder and the installer.


The license file needs to be updated for JMP each year. The latest version can be found using the instructions above for installation (in the academicstore file server under software, facstaffstudents, JMP).
