Zoom Instructions

How do I get a Zoom Host account?

Accounts are assigned each semester.  We have 50 simultaneous host accounts available.  A request will go out prior to each semester to request an account, available on a first come first serve basis.

How and when can I use my Zoom account?

Approved accounts will remain active for the entire semester, and you can host an unlimited number of meetings for the duration of your account.  Once you have an active account, you do not need permission to use it.
