Emory's WSJ Digital Program

Wall Street Journal digital access program!

Emory University students, faculty, and staff have full online access to the digital version of Wall Street Journal and its online content, including the WSJ app. The archive goes back 4 years. For more archival research, go to Factiva which has 30 years of the WSJ, Wall Street Journal Historical, and Proquest WSJ. You also have access to the podcasts.


All current Emory students, faculty and staff (with an address) have online access to the Wall Street Journal online, as well as the app.  You must first set up a Wall Street Journal online account.Unfortunately, our license restricts usage to those with an address.

Step 1:  Go to

Step 2:  Sign in to the Emory’s Single Sign-On web page with your Emory University email and password

Step 3:  The first time you sign on you will be taken to a separate Wall Street Journal (WSJ) sign-in web page.

a. Account Type—select your status: Student, Staff, or Professor

b. Email Address—It is suggested you use a different email address than your Emory one.

c. Password—You have to enter a password for the Wall Street Journal account you are setting up.

(Do NOT enter your Emory University password at this step since this is NOT an Emory account, but rather a WSJ account)

After it is set up you will also be able to access this new account from the WSJ app on your phone/tablet.

Step 4:  After the first time signing on, you will be able to sign in directly through


For Students: You will only need to authenticate once through Emory. You will continue to have access for three months post-graduation. At that time you will be eligible for a special offer to maintain your own digital WSJ subscription.

For Faculty and Staff: You will need to refresh your access by re-authenticating once a year through Emory. You will receive a notice via your email.

For Existing Subscribers: WSJ does not allow 2 simultaneous subscriptions for the same user.  You can cancel your existing subscription and then go through the activation process via Emory. You should be able to reactivate the old account credentials if you so desire.  Call Customer Service to cancel at 1-800-JOURNAL (1-800-568-7625) and ask for the Education team.

For Graduating Students: If you wish to continue your WSJ access post graduation, keep your eyes open for an email from WSJ offering the WSJ Grad Pack, available when your student access expires in August. Their Grad Pack offer will include a discounted rate for two years post graduation, covering both their digital and bundled options.  The current offer will be $2/mo for the first 12 months, $4/mo for next 12 months (meaning 2nd year), $24.99/mo for the next following 5 years, this would be 7 years total of a discounted rate.
