Once you have activated the Group Pass provided by your school, it should allow you full access until your expiration date with no further action on your part.  However, if for any reason while on NYTimes.com you are served the message that you are reaching the limit of free articles on the site, do the following:

Make sure you are logged in to the NYTimes.com account with which you activated your Group Pass. If you log out of your account or visit NYTimes.com on a device where you are not logged in, you can simply log in to your account to continue enjoying access.

If your Group Pass has expiredFollow this link to activate a new pass.  A new pass will be available to you if your school has designated additional access periods and you activate it while physically within your school’s network on campus.  For example, if each pass at your school lasts XX Days, you may revisit nytimes.com/grouppass as necessary to continue your access.  Make sure you are logged in to the NYTimes.com account with which you activated your Group Pass.
