Zoom for Faculty

Zoom Account Setup  

To set up your Zoom account you will need to log into the Palomar Portal and look for the Zoom tile and click on it. That will automatically set up your Palomar Zoom account.

If, however, you don’t have that tile, you’ll need to request from the Information Services Helpdesk (helpdesk@palomar.edu or X2140) that they add that tile to your Portal screen. Once they have the tile established in the Portal for you, you’ll need to click it to get your account set up.
