If you receive an error message instead, it is because your preferred email address in Canvas does not match the email address in your official FSU Zoom account. You will need to add the FSU Zoom email address to your Canvas account and then "star" it to make it your preferred Canvas email address. After doing this, you should be able to access Zoom in your Canvas course.

If you continue to get an error message after following these directions, please reach out to FSU's ITS Service Center for assistance.
