New York Times is FREE for High Schoolers

I’m a high school student. How do I get access?

  • First, your high school administrator or teacher must register with The Times at
  • Once the administrator or teacher is verified and has obtained consent in accordance with the Terms and Conditions, he or she will upload student email addresses to our secure portal.
  • You’ll then receive an email invitation to sign in and access The Times online.
  • It’s important to note that you must use the email invitation to get free digital access. If you create an account directly on or in the New York Times app outside the email invitation, you won’t be able to access the free offer.
