The Chronicle of Higher Education is the leading source of news and commentary about the events, people, and issues shaping higher education in the United States and around the world. Now The Chronicle’s first-rate journalism is available on the iPad.

Each section of The Chronicle is available for download. The iPad Edition contains the major news articles from the weekly print edition. A separate download gives you the essays and commentary from our weekly magazine of ideas, The Chronicle Review. (The sections are separate to provide faster downloads.)

If you have your own subscription to the The Chronicle, you can use this App to download iPad editions at no cost. Non-subscribers can subscribe or purchase individual issues of the news section and The Chronicle Review.

Customer Reviews

Functional and attractive

Once I got used to swiping up or down to turn pages and left or right to view articles I found the system ver useful. The app returns me right to where I left off.

No longer iOS 8 disaster (Updated)

Completely dysfunctional now. The iOS upgrade didn't help. Needs a major fix.


The recent update has returned functionality in the app.

Excellent Content App

Probably one of the best apps for reading content that I have experienced. I have a subscription to the Chronicle through my University.
