NYTimes.com Passes are available for current Ithaca College students, faculty, and staff.

Current students, faculty, and staff can reclaim Passes annually.

Get access

To get access, you will need to claim a Pass. You might need to enter your Netpass information, then you should be brought to a welcome screen.

If you are claiming a Pass for the first time: Click Create Account, enter your ithaca.edu email address, set a password, and click Create Account again.

If you have a personal paid NYT Digital Subscription and want to cancel it and claim a Pass: You must change the email address associated with your account to your ithaca.edu email address and cancel your existing subscription before you can claim a Pass. Then claim a Pass, selecting "Already have an account? Log in here," and enter your ithaca.edu email and existing password.

If you are renewing an expired Pass or or if you already have an nytimes.com account with your ithaca.edu email: Click "Already have an account? Log in here" and enter your account information.

Upon successful account creation or confirmation, you should be brought to a Start Your Access screen which will contain a note about your account's expiration date. Once this registration process is complete, you will be able to access The New York Times online without having to connect through the library's website -- simply access nytimes.com and its features directly using the email and password that you just registered!

Note: If you use the "Already have an account? Log in here" option and have trouble claiming a pass: You should try logging out of your nytimes.com account first and then try claiming a pass. You may also need to log out of your account in NYTimes apps and log back in for your subscription status to sync.
