Newly Admitted International Students | Kent State
You've been admitted to Kent State University! What's next?
1. Watch our Online Seminar For New Students
2. Login to Your Flashline Account
What is Flashline? It's your key to all things Kent State. Your Flashline account provides you access to:
Email, Google Drive and Blackboard Learn
Registration, scheduling and advising
Student resources and records
Campus news and announcement, and more...
If you are a new student trying to log into FlashLine for first time, you must include this one-time setup to receive access to campus resources, such as the FlashZone wireless network and VPN. You will need to use your FlashLine user name and the default password. Your FlashLine user name is everything before the "@" symbol in your Kent State email address which is on your acceptance or hire letter. For example, if your Kent State email address is email@example.com, then your FlashLine user name would be jdoe.
The formula for the default password is mmmyyxxxxx (all lower case), where:
mmm = first three letters of the birth month
yy = last two digits of the birth year
xxxxx = last five digits of your Kent State ID Number
