Welcome to KCAD!

Congratulations on your employment with Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD)! KCAD is excited to help you prepare for this new beginning.

New Hire Meeting and Employment Forms

KCAD Human Resources will contact you in advance of your start date to schedule a new hire meeting to complete the necessary employment paperwork. Please see below for IDs and information you will need to bring with you for this meeting:

  1. IDs for Form I-9: You will need to bring IDs for completion of Form I-9 which verifies your eligibility to work in the United States. The I-9 form linked below lists all of the acceptable forms of ID that can be used. Click here for Form I-9 Instructions.

  2. Direct deposit: If you would like to set up direct deposit, please bring a voided check or a statement from your bank with your routing and account number on it. This form can be submitted at any time before or after employment begins.

The following employment forms can be printed off and completed in advance of the meeting (page 8 of the I-9 form must be completed in person at the new hire meeting). Otherwise the forms will be available for completion during the meeting.

Required Forms:

Official transcripts

For positions that required a degree as part of the required qualifications, KCAD will require an official transcript be sent to our office. As an institution of higher education, this is KCAD's official verification that our faculty and staff meet the required degree (or college coursework) requirements. If you have not already done so, please request that your official transcript be sent directly to:

Adam Wetherell
Kendall College of Art and Design
17 Fountain St. NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49503

The transcript must be for the degree required for your position (if applicable). To be considered official, the transcript must be issued directly from the institution and mailed directly to KCAD. Transcripts that are “issued to student” or that are passed through the student are not considered official.
