Collection & Distribution of Textbooks for Spring 2019

Spring 2019 Distribution of textbooks and iPads has begun!  MPA Services is located in Suite 523.07 Haaren Hall (T- building).

We will be collecting and distributing textbooks/tablets from Monday, January 14th to Thursday, February 14th, 2019.

Please Note: 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 on-campus students must complete the DT Textbooks Form  which is used for both returns and new loans. If you do not have a completed form, you will be given a form to fill out before you are served by the MPA Services staff.  

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 you should 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.
  • On-campus students who borrowed an iPad for the semester are allowed to hold onto the iPad for the next Semester, if and only if, they are enrolled in at least one the following courses: PAD 700 , 713 , 739 , 747 , 755 , 758 , 771
