Zoom Meeting Times Appearing Incorrect

If you are a student in a Live Online class and your Zoom class meetings are showing a time that is different than the one on your class schedule, it is likely because the time zone on your Soom account OR the time zone on your device is set incorrectly.

To fix this issue, you will want to ensure your time zone is set correctly in both places.

Step 1

First, check your time zone on Zoom. You can do that by following these directions:

  1. Go to http://rcsj-edu.zoom.us and sign in using your RCSJ username and password.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Profile.
  3. Under Personal, to the right of Time Zone, click Edit.
  4. Click the dropdown menu to select a different time zone.
  5. Click Save.


Step 2

Next, check your time zone on your computer.
