HR Question of the Week

HR Question of the week

I don’t know my Kent State ID number; where can I find it?

Every employee has a Kent State ID number (formerly known as a Banner ID). It is a nine-digit number that identifies students, faculty, staff, alumni and other constituents in the Banner system. The easiest way to find the number is to follow these steps:

  • Log in to FlashLine using your user name and password;
  • Select the "My Account" tab;
  • Your Kent State Banner ID number (beginning with the number 8) will show under the "My Identity" section on the left.

The Kent State Banner ID number also appears in the admissions letter for new students or the employment letter for new faculty and staff.
