Convert files from student to full

In college I created a lot of stuff in Solidworks as “concepts” using a (legal) student copy for practice. Fast-forward a couple of years – now that I’m an engineer in industry I’ve bought my own (legal) full copy of Solidworks. I’ve discovered some of the stuff I designed in college has real-world application. I’m interested in getting some of the stuff fabricated/prototyped – but it all still has the “Student Copy” watermark, and I get a pop-up error any time I open the files in my full copy of Solidworks.


I’m wondering if there is a way to “launder” these files to remove the watermark, popups/warnings, and “Student Copy” attributes… or am I going to have to re-CAD all of the files?
