In some situations, instructors with a HIPAA Zoom account will wish to change this account to be associated with another email address to utilize the non-HIPAA Zoom with their netid@syr.edu, in order to be able to use Zoom for teaching and Blackboard integration. 

This process needs to be initiated by a request to ITS. Please send an email to consult@cas.syr.edu, as we will need to make this request on your behalf. When the request is made, you will be notified by ITS that they have initiated the process to get this done.

The following is what you can expect and the steps you need to follow to confirm and complete this process:

  1. ITS changes the email address associated with the phi-syracuseuniversity.zoom.us instance from netid@syr.edu to netid@g.syr.edu
    *Please note that phi-syracuseuniversity.zoom.us will be associated with your SU Google Account.

  2. Once ITS receives this request and a confirmation from you that you would like to move forward, you will receive an email from Zoom to your netid@syr.edu account. Click on "Confirm and Continue" in the body of the email.

                 You will NOT receive these emails if you have not requested this. If for any reason you have received an email to confirm any type of change to your Zoom account and you did not request it, please email consult@cas.syr.edu to report it.
