SIGN UP FOR A FREE PRO/LICENSED ZOOM ACCOUNT

(Zoom accounts are available for all NJCU Faculty, Staff and Students)

The Pro / Licensed version of Zoom is available to all Faculty, Staff and Students using their NJCU Email Address. (No time limits, unlimited meetings, etc.)

For anyone who doesn’t yet have an account, simply visit:

https://njcu.zoom.us/  

Scroll down the page and click the SIGN UP button to get a pro/licensed Zoom account through NJCU. The new Zoom account requestor will simply need to go through the necessary account creation steps, which include setting a password, etc. 

Steps to follow:  

  1. Enter your date of birth and then your NJCU email address when signing up for the account, and then continue.
  2. Zoom will send an email to the NJCU email address that was provided for verification purposes. You'll need to click on the link in the email to verify the receipt of the email.
  3. Follow the instructions by entering your name.
  4. Enter a password for your Zoom account. This password can be anything you would like, but please follow the password requirements as indicated by Zoom.
  5. When prompted to invite other people, you can skip this step.
  6. Important: Then sign in to your account. And then, sign out of your account. Then, sign back into your account.
  7. When prompted with the option to "CONSOLIDATE" the account, be sure to select "CONSOLIDATE" which will merge the default free account with the NJCU Pro Account (with no time limit and up to 300 meeting participants).  Added note:  If you don't see a message asking you to consolidate the account, log out of Zoom and then log back into Zoom and you should see the option to consolidate. If you need any additional help, please contact the IT Help Desk.

Here is the screenshot showing the "Consolidate" option that you will see:
