Activate your Dartmouth-sponsored New York Times membership:
If you have an existing (unpaid) NYT account, do not click on "create account". Click "Already have an account? Log in here" and log in with your existing NYT username / password. This will tie your existing username/password to the Dartmouth Site License.
If you have an existing (paid) NYT account, you will need to cancel it first, before it can be associated with the Dartmouth site license. Cancel your account through customer care:
Once canceled, that will "free up" the username so that it may be associated with the Dartmouth site license. Click "Already have an account? Log in here" and log in with your existing NYT username / password.
Your account will be active for one year. After expiration, you may activate a new pass by visiting NYTimes.com/grouppass while connected to the Dartmouth network, and logging in with your existing account. (Don't create a new account.)
