Why isn't my Sibelius working at home (Scotch)?


​Sibelius  is a piece of music composition software that can be downloaded from Self Service . It can be used on campus anytime, however in order to access the program from home you will need to issue yourself a license.


Please note that if you are a PLC Student, then you will need to follow a different process as your Sibelius  version is different.


Follow these steps to issue the correct license:

  1. Open Self Service  from your Applications folder.
  2. Click on the Scotch Music tab on the right hand side, or search for Sibelius  then click the Sibelius Icon .

  3. Click on Install to install Sibelius .

  4. Once the installation has completed, open Sibelius  from your Applications folder. Then click on the Help tab and select Check out License. 

  5. You will then get a message asking how long to issue the license for. Confirm it for 30 Days.

  6. Enter your Password in the box that appears. Your name should already be in the Username field.

  7. Once the license is issued, you will get a Confirmation Message.


You will now be able to use Sibelius  Off Campus for a 30 Day Period.
