Why use an academic pass from MCC to read The New York Times online?
The New York Times requires a paid subscription for full access to its website, NYTimes.com. Visitors to the site who are not subscribers may only read up to 5 free articles per month. The Academic Pass gives you access to all content on the site.
I already have a Times digital subscription, which gives me unlimited access to NYTimes.com. What should I do?
If you have an existing digital subscription connected to your college email address, you need to cancel it before activating an Academic Pass.
What are the restrictions?
Each day of their pass, users may access up to five free articles published between the years 1923 through 1980. All NYTimes.com Pass users have unlimited access to archived articles outside the 1923–1980 date range (e.g., 1851-1922, 1980-present). Passes do not include e-reader editions, Times Premier content or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword.
Can I access The Times outside of my organization’s network?
Yes, as long as you have previously activated your Academic Pass from within your organization’s network, e.g., its designated IP ranges.
Can I access The Times from my mobile device?
You can access NYTimes.com and INYT.com on any device with a browser. Mobile app access is determined by the organization providing the Group Pass access. Visit nytimes.com/grouppass while connected to providing organization’s network to view your Pass benefits.
Why am I asked to log in on some occasions and not others?
This may be because your browser may clear its web cache/history if it is set to do so. In such cases you will need to log back into NYTimes.com with the email address you used to sign up, but you can still use your Academic Pass.
How do I renew my pass when it expires?
Return to the NY Times Academic Pass Page. Once you get to this page, click on "Already have an account? Log in here" and enter the same email address and password you used to create the account. This will renew your account for 1 more year. The site gives you the option of setting a calendar reminder to renew.
