Understanding Licensed and Basic Zoom accounts
The day your student or employee affiliation ends with Northwestern, your Zoom account is downgraded from a Licensed account to a Basic account. This allows Northwestern to maintain an available number of Licensed accounts for new students, faculty, and staff.
Your NetID remains active according to the timeline published at https://www.it.northwestern.edu. As long as your NetID is active, you can log in and use Northwestern's Zoom service. However, you will be limited to the features of Zoom's Basic service.
