Tips and Troubleshooting


  • If you have an existing paid NYT subscription, you must cancel it before you can be linked to MJC’s access.  

  • The NYT pass page is needed ONLY to sign up for or to renew access. All content is at (or download the mobile app from Google Play or the App Store) 

  • Students will have access until they graduate as long as the MJC Library continues to support this access. 

    •  The Library will review usage annually to make that decision. 

  • Faculty and Staff must renew once every four years, assuming the library continues to provide access. Add your expiration date to your calendar as there will be no reminders. 

  • If you have trouble creating your account, please contact an MJC Librarian. 

Accessing the paper

Once you have created the your MJC linked account, you can access the paper from your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. Go to and log in using your MJC email address as your user name and the password you created for this account as your password.
