What is Flash Help?

Flash Help is a support service that allows students to ask for help when they need it! Students who are experiencing multiple concerns are welcome to submit more than one Flash Help request.

These concerns might include:

  • Academic
  • Social
  • Physical Health or Wellness
  • Identity/Equity
  • Financial Concerns (not related to financial aid or billing)
  • Other

Once a request has been received by the Office of Student Success Programs, it will be sent to the appropriate campus resource. Students will then be contacted by someone at Kent State University who can help them within 1-3 business days.  

Flash Help can be found in Flashline:

  • Log in to Flashline and navigate to your "Student Dashboard"
  • Select “Student Resources”
  • Select “Flash Help”

You can also submit a Flash Help request here:
