Zoom Setup for Remote Proctored Exams

We are asking everyone to log in to the Zoom app with your UW NetID for exam proctoring sessions so we can pre-assign students and proctors to breakout rooms. We have set up a Zoom test room so you can make sure this works for you before exam day.

Step 1: Install Zoom Cloud Meetings app on your device

This can be downloaded for free from the Apple and Android app stores. NOTE: This needs to be a separate device from the one you plan to take the exam on.

Step 2: Make sure you are using a HIPAA Zoom account

UW Zoom accounts are either HIPAA or standard. Just to make things easier, we are asking everyone to use the HIPAA account. Here’s how you can find out what you have:

  1. Log in to the web portal at https://washington.zoom.us
  2. Click HIPAA UW Zoom
  3. If you see a screen that says “You are signing into a Zoom account that is different from your current one.” select the second option, “Switch to the New Account” on the following screen, then select “I Acknowledge and Switch” to confirm your selection. Follow the steps provided to confirm your account changes via email. If you do NOT see this screen and it just logs you in, you already have the HIPAA account and you are fine!

Step 3: Log in to the Zoom app

Open the Zoom Cloud Meetings app on your device. If you are NOT already signed in, you’ll see three buttons: Join a Meeting, Sign Up, and Sign In. Tap Sign In, then Sign In with SSO. The company domain you want to use is uw-phi.zoom.us. This will take you to a web browser and you can log in with your NetID.

Step 4: Join a test Zoom meeting

If you ARE already signed in when you open the app, it will take you to the Meet & Chat screen where you can tap Join. Here is the meeting information for you to add manually:

Meeting ID: 947 6970 0240
Password: 976102

You cannot log in to this meeting unless you are logged in to your UW Zoom account, so if you log in successfully, you are good to go! (NOTE: This is NOT the Zoom meeting that you will use for your exam–that will be sent to you in a separate email before the exam.)

If you are not able to successfully log in to this meeting, send an email to somalt@uw.edu letting them know where you ran into difficulty.
