Your Kent State FLASHcard is more than just your student ID. You can use your FLASHcard in a variety of ways on campus.

Debit Account
Students can use their FLASHcard like a debit card once money is added to the FLASHcard account, known as FLASHcash. You can purchase books, supplies and clothing in the Bookstore, purchase food and beverages in the Emporium and use it to pay for printing in the computer labs - a necessity! You can also use your FLASHcard at select off-campus locations like Denny's and Sheetz, and many locations in Kent. View locations

To add money to your FLASHcard, visit the Office of Student Services and a cashier will add your credit to your account. You can also visit Kent State's FLASHcard site (CAS Login) to add money to your account online.

Oftentimes, you will be asked for your FLASHcard on campus when trying to do routine procedures like changing your schedule or requesting a transcript. 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.

How to Get a FLASHcard
All new students to Kent State should get a FLASHcard as soon as they register for classes. To get your FLASHcard, stop in the Office of Student Services and bring a current photo ID with you, such as a driver's license or state issued ID. You will be issued one free FLASHcard for your career at Kent State. Your FLASHcard is good at all eight campuses of Kent State.

Lost FLASHcards
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.
