Preferred Identification at Kent State

Your FLASHcard is the preferred method of identification on campus. You will need it to check out materials in the Library and to utilize the Recreation & Wellness Center.
Should you lose your FLASHcard, contact the Office of Student Services immediately. Your card needs to be deactivated and a new card issued. There is a $25 replacement fee to have a new card issued.
