The FLASHcard

The FLASHcard is your Kent State University ID card and more. Your card will let you take materials out of the Kent State University libraries, access services such as Student Recreation and Wellness Center & athletic events, and purchase goods and services both on and off campus. If you have a dining plan, you will use your FLASHcard to purchase meals in our dining halls. You may also deposit money on your FLASHcard and create a debit account. This plan, now known as FLASHcash (previously called the Golden FLASH Card), will allow you to make purchases both on and off campus wherever the FLASHcard is accepted.

For Visitors:

The FLASHcard Portal allows you to deposit funds into your student's FLASHcard accounts (FLASHcash, Meal Plans, etc.).

How to get your first FLASHcard:

 In order to get your Kent State University FLASHcard you must complete a FLASHcard Application Form (PDF) and come to room 104 in the Kent Student Center with an official state photo ID or Passport. We are located just off the Kent Student Center lobby next to PNC Bank and are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. If your are a distance learning student, and can not come to the Flashcard Office or one of the branch campuses office, you can follow the instructions on the Flashcard Distance Learning Application (PDF).
