Authorizing AMOS Trial Software (Enter Authorization Code)

This article covers how to Authorize your Trial software version of SPSS AMOS.

  • Once the software has been installed, you will be prompted to authorize it.
  • OMG I can’t find my Authorization Code!
  • Don’t panic! First, check your student email account. You should have received an email with the license serial number when you placed the order.
  • I think I deleted that email!
  • Okay. Go to the CSUF e-Licensing site and select Faculty & Staff. Log on with your Portal username and password. Click View Purchased License on the left. Voila! There are all of the serial numbers for software that you purchased through CSUF.
