Fall 2017 DT Textbook and iPad Collection Schedule

Stacked books

This is the schedule for Spring 2018 distribution of textbooks and iPads.  MPA Services is located at Suite 523.07 Haaren Hall (T- building).

We will be collecting and distributing textbooks/tablets from Tuesday, January 16th to Saturday, February 10th 2018.

As always, you must bring  a state or JJC student ID and a copy of your course schedule when you come to pick up your textbooks/iPad.

MPA students in the MPA-PPA or MPA-IO online programs, who do not live in NYC (five Boroughs), have the option of getting their textbooks mailed to them and return them by mail (return is at the students’ cost).

  • To obtain books, complete the DT Textbooks Form and scan/email the signed form with a copy of your class schedule to mpaadvising@jjay.cuny.edu and the books will be mailed to you.
  • To return the books, use the same form and mail the books to John Jay College MPA Services Room 523.07T, 524 West 59th. Street New York, NY, 10019. You will receive an email confirming receipt of the books.
