MPA DT Textbooks/iPad Schedule for Spring 2019 Collection & Summer 2019 Distribution

This is the schedule for the Spring 2019 Distribution of textbooks and iPads.  MPA Services is located in Suite 523.07 Haaren Hall (T- building).

We will be collecting and distributing textbooks/tablets from Monday, May 13th, to Thursday, June 20th, 2019.

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 on-campus students will complete this DT Textbooks Form  which works for both returns and new loans. If you don’t 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.

The Book-room is located in room 523T Haaren Hall Building and will be open for collection and distribution as follow:
