What is a FLASHcard?

The FLASHcard is your Kent State University ID card and more. Your card will let you take materials out of the Kent State libraries, access services such as Student Recreation & Wellness Center and athletic events, and purchase goods and services both on and off campus. If you have a food 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 will allow you to make purchases both on and off campus wherever the FLASHcard is accepted. Financial Aid may be deposited to your FLASHcash account! Avoid credit card fees, and still keep the safety and convenience of paying with a card. Visit the Bursar at 138 Schwartz Center.

The FLASHcard is now accepted at over 80 locations, including:
