Requesting a license

Fill out and submit this online form

Please note, it is not necessary to have a Zoom account in order to join and participate in meetings. An account is only needed if you wish to host your own meetings. Any Missouri State student, staff, or faculty member can be issued a basic account. Licenses are prioritized for teaching and direct student and faculty support. Additional licenses may be issued for core administrative purposes. After you submit the form, we will contact you by email to issue your account or with any additional questions.
