Q: New York Times tips and troubleshooting

  • Access: Initial registration or re-registration requires that you log in to Yale's Cisco AnyConnect client. After you register or re-register, there is no need to log in to Yale's VPN. Simply go to and log in with your email address and password.
  • Expiration: Student accounts expire on the graduation date entered by the student during registration. Faculty and staff accounts expire one year from creation. After registration, the NYT will give you the option to download a calendar reminder. We recommend using this feature to create a calendar reminder for yourself for the expiration date and time when you will need to re-register
