How to Access The Wall Street Journal



The UCI Libraries are proud to be the first in the UC System to offer campus-wide access to
The Wall Street Journal directly through! 

The UCI Libraries and The Wall Street Journal entered a partnership which provides sponsored WSJ memberships for all students, faculty and staff at UCI.  Each activated membership comes with personalized access to, the WSJ mobile app, industry-specific newsletters and podcasts, and exclusive experiences with access to special events and discounts through WSJ+.

  • Use a UCI .edu email address to create your membership account.
  • Students need to enter their graduation date when they register for membership; students do not need to renew their membership annually.  
  • After your membership account is created:
  • Simply use to access content.
  • You can also download the WSJ mobile app.  When you launch the app, go directly to “Sign In.”


Do students receive additional benefits from Wall Street Journal after they graduate? 

Students with activated memberships qualify for significantly reduced promotional rates that continue for two years after graduating.  Students will receive an automated email upon graduation from WSJ inviting them to subscribe at those exclusive rates. 


Can current UCI affiliates who already have personal subscriptions cancel their membership?

If you currently pay for a personal WSJ membership, you will not automatically be switched to the UCI Libraries sponsored membership. To cancel a personal membership and switch to the university-sponsored membership, you have two options:

  • Option 1:  email
  • Option 2:  call 1-800-JOURNAL and say that you are switching to the subscription provided by the University of California, Irvine. 

Partial refunds will be dispersed.  After your personal account is closed, you will be able to activate your complimentary membership sponsored by the UCI Libraries.

How do current UCI faculty and staff renew their membership?

Faculty and staff need to renew their membership annually.
