NYTimes Academic Pass for Earlham

NYTimes Academic Pass

Earlham College Libraries have partnered with the New York Times to offer the NYTimes Academic Pass service. A NYTimes Academic Pass provides you with full access to NYTimes.com and the NYTimes.com smartphone apps for a full term from the date you activate it.

Please note that access does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps. NYTimes apps are not supported on all devices. Access to archived articles within the date range 1923-1980 is limited. You must have a valid email address from Earlham College to participate.


Setting up your account

Please go to accessnyt.com and type Earlham into the "Find school..." search box. Select Earlham College - Richmond, IN.

If you are physically on campus follow instructions after clicking on the word "here" on the resulting NYT Access page. If you are anywhere else in the world (not on campus), click on the big blue "GO" button and follow instructions to register or login. 

Make sure you use your earlham.edu email address to register for your free NYT account.

Returning Users

When registering for the academic passes, students will be asked to provide their anticipated graduation date. Students will not have to re-authenticate for their pass until that date.

For faculty/staff, once you have followed the steps for first-time users and activated the NYTimes Academic Pass, it should allow you full access all semester with no further action on your part. However, if for any reason while on NYTimes.com you are served the message that you are reaching the limit of free articles on the site, do the following:

  • Make sure you are logged in to NYTimes.com with your Earlham email address.
  • Go to:  accessnyt.com and type Earlham into the "Find school..." search box. Select Earlham College - Richmond, IN.

    If you are physically on campus follow instructions after clicking on the word "here" on the resulting NYT Access page. If you are anywhere else in the world (not on campus), click on the big blue "GO" button. 

  • Select "log in here;" enter same @earlham.edu email credentials you originally used to activate your account. Your pass should again be active.

Smartphone / Mobile Apps

Once you have activated an account as described above, you can go to the app store of your choice and download the NYT app and login with the same username and password that you used to set up your account. 

Please note that access does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps. NYTimes apps are not supported on all devices. Access to archived articles within the date range 1923-1980 is limited. You must have a valid email address from Earlham College to participate.

FAQ & Troubleshooting

If you are having problems accessing your Academic Pass, visit the NYTimes Troubleshooting Guide »

I keep having to log into NYTimes.com with my email address and password each time I want to enter the site.  What can I do?

Some internet browser software provides for the user to enable "private browsing" or "incognito browsing." These settings inhibit the use of cookies and therefore the user would be prompted to log into NYTimes.com each time they want to access the site. Eliminating these setting should resolve that problem. Another issue could be automatic cache clearing setup on your computer. This would eliminate the cookie requiring the user to log into the site if the cookie has been removed.

I am a returning Academic Pass user. I logged in to NYTimes.com but I received a message that I reached my monthly limit.

You may have logged in to NYTimes.com only. To claim an NYTimes.com Academic Pass for unlimited access, you must also visit www.nytimes.com/passes.

What are the restrictions?

Site license access does not include the NYTimes.com tablet apps. Passes do not include e-reader editions, Times Premier content or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword. All Digital Access pass users do not have the ability to share their digital access. Access to archived articles within the date range 1923-1980 is limited. Additional restrictions may apply.

Can I access the Times from off-campus?

Yes, as long as you have registered using your Earlham email address and obtained your Academic Pass.

Why am I asked to login 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 login back into to NYTimes.com, but there is no need to get another Academic Pass.

Do Earlham alumni have access to the New York Times via Academic Pass?

No, only current Earlham students, faculty and staff will have access via the Academic Pass.

I still need help!

Please contact edu@nytimes.com or an Earlham librarian.
