The Chronicle of Higher Education

Update 06/05/20: A large number of Chronicle of Higher Education credentials were leaked into the dark web, including 1,400 VCU email addresses and passwords. If you have an account with the Chronicle of Higher Education please reset your password at www.chronicle.com.

You can access The Chronicle of Higher Education from off-campus with your VCU eID and password.

  1. From the link above, you will be prompted to login using your VCU e-ID and password.
  2. After you login, you will see The Chronicle homepage with the words "Premium Access Provided by Virginia Commonwealth University" in the top right corner. 
  3. Beneath the "Premium Access" notice, you can use the search box to search Chronicle contents. When searching, use the "Sort by" box to sort by date or relevance. 

How to sign-up for your own Chronicle account

After you’ve logged into The Chronicle using your eID and password, you can set up your own Chronicle account using your VCU email address and a password of your own choice. 

Once you’ve created your own Chronicle account, you will not have to use your eID and password to access The Chronicle. Instead, you simply connect to The Chronicle website at chronicle.com and login in with your VCU email address and your selected password. A Chronicle account gives you additional benefits, such as email newsletters of headline content, commenting, and a personal profile to tailor notices to you.

 

To create a personal account, first make sure you’ve logged into The Chronicle and you see “Premium Access Provided by Virginia Commonwealth University” in the upper right corner, then you can click "LOG IN."

 

 

Then click "Create an Account" and create your own account using your VCU email address and a password of your choice.
