How to restrict course Zoom meetings to FSU users only

To increase the security of your course Zoom meetings, you can now restrict your course meetings to only allow FSU students, staff, and faculty to join. Instead of joining your course meeting anonymously or from a personal Zoom account, your students will instead be required to login to their FSU Zoom accounts to join your meeting. To use this setting, simply enable the restricted setting in your Zoom account and then in your Canvas course you will be able to restrict your meetings to FSU users only whenever desired.

How to enable the "restrict to FSU users only" setting in your Zoom account

Keep in mind: Switching this setting on makes it the default for other non-course Zoom meetings that you may schedule in the future. If you do not want your non-course Zoom meetings to be restricted to FSU users, you will need to alter this setting each time you schedule an individual, non-course meeting outside of Canvas.

  1. Log into your FSU Zoom account at with your FSU credentials.
  2. On the left of the page select Settings.

  3. Under the security options, scroll down to locate the Only authenticated users can join meetings setting. Slide the corresponding toggle on so that it turns blue.

How to schedule a meeting that is restricted to FSU users only

Follow the directions in our Using Canvas integration: How to schedule a Zoom meeting support article. Under "Meeting Options," simply check the only authenticated users can join option. From the drop-down menu that appears, select Restricted to FSU Faculty, Staff, and Students Only and then press the Save button to save your course meeting. Now, only FSU users will be able to join your course meeting!
