Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I log in?

You must create your account using your Siena College email address. If you have created an account with a non-Siena email, your account may have been suspended. You should contact WSJ to have them assist in correcting the problem. Their phone number is 1-800-JOURNAL.

Why am I asked to login on some occasions and not others?

Your browser cache or history may have cleared itself. Go to and log back in.

I'm logged into my account but now it's asking me to pay/subscribe. What's going on?

It might be time to renew your account. Accounts last for one calendar year from the date of creation. Follow the steps in the Renewing Your Account box to renew.

Renewing your account

Wall Street Journal accounts last for one calendar year from activation. At the end of the subscription period, you will need to renew your account. The process is very similar to creating an account, but here are some steps to make it easier:

  1. Make sure you are already logged into with your account.
  2. Click Siena's unique account activation link.
  3. You will be brought to a Siena Log In page. Enter your Siena credentials to sign in. 
  4. Complete the Create Account form with your information.
  5. You will see a confirmation screen if you have registered successfully. A confirmation email will be sent to you. 
  6. Complete the renewal process by clicking the link in the email. 
  7. Make sure you refresh your browser, etc. if you are still being asked to subscribe when you are logged in (especially if you had any WSJ pages open before renewing your account).

Note: If you are using any WSJ apps on a phone or tablet, you may have to log back in on those devices after renewal.
