What are my FlashLine user name and my Kent State ID number? What are they for?

If you are new to Kent State, these 2 pieces of information will be mailed to your home address.  If you are a new student,  the Admissions office will send it to you.  If you are a new employee, Human Resources will send you the information.

Kent State ID number: it is a 9-digit unique number that begins with an "8".  You will need this number to log into your FlashLine account initially.  The university will use this number to identify you instead of your Social Security Number. The information is also in FlashLine, on the left side under your name after logging in.  This number should be memorized and not shared with others for security reasons.

FlashLine user name:  It is the first part of your kent.edu email address (before @kent.edu).  It is 8 characters long and comprised of a combination of your name and possibly some numbers.  Your user name is unique to you.  You will log into FlashLine and other Kent State accounts with your user name.
