Collegiate Readership Program

As part of Student Government Board’s Collegiate Readership Program, every undergraduate student has the opportunity to subscribe to the New York Times, free of charge. This subscription allows students unlimited access to the NYT’s online content through their website or mobile phone application, ensuring that students have the opportunity to educate them on the issues facing our world today.

On Monday, September 7th, 2020, we are altering the process to subscribe to the New York Times to make it easier for students to maintain their subscription. Whether you are creating a new NYT account or already have one, please refer to the following table to find out what you have to do have a free subscription this school year:
