New York Times Academic Pass
The New York Times Academic Pass is now available to all CUNY students, faculty and staff. The Academic Pass gives anybody with a cuny.edu email domain a yearlong subscription to the New York Times Digital. The NY Times Academic pass basically works like any subscription to the New York Times Digital except it does not include the tablet app (it does include apps for mobile phones) and limits the number of downloadable articles from the New York Times archive.
Your pass is good for 52 weeks from the date you activate it.
*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 a participating school. Other restrictions may apply.
