In order to pull an academic pass from the University account, your NYTimes account must be free of any active paid subscriptions. If you have any active subscriptions, you will need to cancel them prior to pulling a pass from the University subscription (or have your subscription transferred to an account under a personal email). Please either cancel the subscription in the "my account" section that can be found in the upper right hand corner of, or through our Customer Care Team ( / 800-591-9233). Once the account is inactive you just need to visit and follow the onscreen instructions to pull a pass. 

If you have any trouble with this process, please email us @


If you have difficulty accessing articles or setting up your account, try the steps below:

  1. Try to access an article like this one:
  2. If you can't view it, go to the Account menu in the upper right and double check that the email address listed is your Emerson one. (sometimes, if you've made an account, even a free one, with another email address it will get "stuck" as your default log-in.)
  3. If you are logged in with your Emerson email...check the Subscription Overview section. Make sure under "Your Subscription" it says News Group access
  4. If you've ever had a paid subscription with your Emerson email address, call their customer care line (email won't cut it, unfortunately) and cancel that account before trying again
