Zoom Webinar allows you to broadcast your meeting or seminar to up to 1000 view-only attendees. As the host or a panelist, you can share your screen, video, and audio in a webinar, and attendees can use the chat or question and answer options to interact with the host and panelists. For more information, see Zoom Webinar Guide.
The University of Maryland has a limited number of Webinar licenses that are assigned to specific users on a first-come, first-served basis. Zoom Webinars can be hosted at any time.
To reserve a Zoom webinar license, fill out the Webinar License Request. Our Webinar Support team will review your request and assign a 1-day Webinar License to your UMD account for the day of the webinar. You will receive a notification once the license is assigned to your account. The Zoom webinar license will remain available until your desired event time ends. Access to Zoom webinar licenses is required to schedule, edit, and start a Zoom webinar.

It doesn't matter if more than 300 exceed the meeting registration, they will still be able to register. However, only the first 300 for meetings or 1000 for webinars will be allowed to enter. 5000 is the registration limit.
Only the first 1000 are allowed in.
