Here are some answers to commonly asked questions.
Help for Subscribers
How much does a subscription cost?
The Chronicle of Higher Education publishes 43 issues a year while updating its Web site daily. A one-year subscription to the print edition costs $87.00. Subscribers also get full access to all of Chronicle.com at no extra cost. See our subscription form for more options and information.
What exactly is a digital edition?
The digital edition is an environmental friendly format that allows you to view an exact replica of the newspaper on your computer. It works with any common Web browser and you can read everything that was published in the print edition. And like our print subscribers, you can access all the premium, subscriber-only content at Chronicle.com.
I'm a subscriber and I can not gain access the premium content at Chronicle.com.
If you have a Chronicle of Higher Education account, log on at http://chronicle.com/activate and follow the on-screen instructions to activate your access to The Chronicle's premium content. You'll need a recent issue of The Chronicle as information from your mailing label is required to confirm your subscription.
Mailing label? I have a digital subscription. How do I activate my access to The Chronicle's Web site?

I can't find my copy of The Chronicle, and I want access now. What do I do?
