Faculty and Staff Annual Renewal

All faculty and staff accounts for the Wall Street Journal must “refresh” their accounts once every 12 months in order to verify that they are still actively affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Students have to provide Dow Jones with their graduation month and year. Students do not have to “refresh” annually. They have uninterrupted access through their graduation date and also get a 90-day grace period after their graduation date in which they retain online access to the Wall Street Journal.
