R2014a and later
If you are a Licensed End User, you must contact a license Administrator to obtain installation files which will work without an internet connection. If you are a license Administrator, you can obtain offline installation files in two ways:
Download Only
License Administrators can download a complete set of installation files using the MATLAB installer.
NOTE: When selecting a platform, choose the platform of the computer you are performing the download on, not the platform of the target machine.
Once the installer is downloaded:
  1. Select "Log in with a MathWorks account"
  2. Agree to the Software License Agreement
  3. Enter your MathWorks account credentials
  4. Choose "Download Only"
  5. Specify the Download Folder and Platform. You can download for multiple platforms if desired.
  6. Specify Products to Download. (You can use the checkbox at the top to check or uncheck all boxes)
  7. Confirm the products and platforms to download.
  8. Complete the Download. Depending on your products and connection speed, this can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.
MATLAB .ISO Image
License Administrators can download the MATLAB .iso image, which contains all of the installation files that are on the DVD. For more information about downloading MATLAB .iso files, please see the following support article:
How can I obtain an offline installer for MATLAB without using the “Download Only” option in the MATLAB installer?
Once done please use the link below for instructions on how to install using the ISO:

R2013b and earlier
See the following article:
Note: Offline installation is not available on Home or Student licenses.

Cannot find the "download only" option in the Matlab 2018b installer. Did you remove that?
Agreed. In the R2018b download step 4. Choose "Download Only" is not there and the Next > button seems to move on to local installation.
I saw Download Only in R2018b installer for Mac. But then I am a license administrator as mentioned by Scott in his comment to Benedict.

I downloaded the installer an startet it. But there is no option like Download only. The next step after login to a MathWorks account is to choose a licence followed by choose installation folder.
I don't know what to do now...

The Download Only option is only available for license administrators. Contact your license administrator for assistance.

how many devices can I use License for?

  1 Comment

Student licenses, and Home licenses may only be activated on one device at a time.
Academic licenses maybe activated on two devices per authorized user. This includes Total Academic Headcount (TAH) licenses that are provided for students to use
Commercial / Professional licenses have several different forms available. Node Locked licenses can be activated only on one device at a time. Named User licenses can be activated on up to four devices at a time. Networked licenses are not activated against devices.

Answer by Paul Lebow on 3 Jul 2018

These instructions are poor and incomplete and possibly incorrect. It doesn't make sense to download a version of Matlab for the downloading computer rather than the target off-line computer. It also leaves one hanging without explaining how to download the complete set of install files. The ISO files are a real pain and not supported directly with windows. Why can't one get all the info needed from one location rather than jumping all around the web?

Hi Paul,
The instructions in the answer provided are correct, these instructions are intended to walk people through how to get install files that they can move to a secure computer. ISOs are supported natively on Windows 10, however if you are not running Windows 10, you can consult your IT about what program to use for mounting the ISO. Additionally, you can treat the ISO like a zip file and unzip the ISO and run the setup.exe located inside.
I have attached a link below that explains all the various steps involved in installing MATLAB on an offline computer.
