Sign in to your Chico State Zoom Account Using SSO

Prerequisites

Overview 

Most of us have used Zoom at this point.

However, what you may not realize is that you might already be signed into Zoom using an account not associated with the privileges your Chico State Zoom account provides.

These privileges include: hosting meetings with unlimited meeting time, record to the cloud, access meetings that require authentication, and be automatically assigned to "pre-assigned breakout rooms" in classes where you work with the same groups on a regular schedule. 

You may find it helpful to remember the motto: When prompted to sign in to Zoom, there's one thing to know....always, always choose SSO.
