Does The New York Times offer a student discount?
The New York Times offers generous discounts for educators and students for digital or print subscriptions. For digital access, students pay only $1 per week, while educators pay $1.88 per week. This is great news indeed if you are a news junkie, in journalism or other current-events related fields, or a history buff who wants to peruse their archives.
How much is The New York Times educational discount?
The discount varies based on which subscription plan you select, and by whether you are a student or a teacher.
- Basic Digital Subscription: ($1/week for students; $1.88/teachers. Standard rate: $3.75 per week.) With this digital subscription, you get access to the complete publication of The New York Times online, and unlimited access to their articles, archives, and apps.
- All-Access Digital Subscription: ($1.50/week for students; $3.13/week for educators. Standard rate: $6.25/week.) For those who want to delve into the realm of journalism, All-Access includes everything in Basic Digital, plus more. The additional features include exclusive coverage from inside the newsroom, and access to live events hosted by the editorial and journalism staff. For more in-depth reading, select from over 120 e-book collections of curated stories. (The “Inside the Times” podcast is also listed as a feature, but appears to be free for anyone.)
- Print Delivery: ($4.95/week for both students and teachers. Standard rate: $9.90/week.) If you prefer to get your news the old-fashioned way, or want hard copies for your classroom, print delivery is 50% off with the education rate. As a bonus, when you subscribe to print, you get all the features of All-Access Digital as well. You select daily or customized delivery. Their weekly and monthly magazines are also included.
