To be able to access Kent State FlashLine, you will need to log in. For those new students, faculty, or staff members who are trying to sign into FlashLine for the very first time, you need to include this one-time setup to get access to campus resources, such as the FlashZone wireless network and VPN. You will have to use the FlashLine username and default password. For your information, your FlashLine username is everything before the @ symbol in your Kent State University email address which is your acceptance or hire letter. For instance, if your Kent State University email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, then your FlashLine user name would be sams, the one before the @.
