MPA Textbook Loan Distribution (Spring 2020)

The MPA Bookroom is located at 523.07 Haaren Hall, inside the Public Management Annex on the 5th Floor. Currently, the MPA Bookroom is closed until the end of the spring 2020 semester. An update will be posted when the bookroom hours are available on this website and the MPA student email list.

If you have a textbook/equipment hold, please email mpatextbooks@jjay.cuny.edu, using your JJC email. Make sure to include your EMPLID and program modality (MPA-PPA Campus, MPA-PPA Online, MPA-IO Campus, MPA-IO Online, or MPA Non-Degree). Appointments to request or return textbooks can be requested via this email.

MPA students in the MPA-PPA Online or MPA-IO Online programs, who do not live in NYC (five Boroughs), have the option of getting their textbooks mailed to them.

If you currently have outstanding textbooks from prior semesters, a CUNYFirst hold will be placed on your account.  This hold will prevent you from registering for a class, making an appointment to pick up textbooks, accessing transcripts, and receiving your diploma. You should email mpatextbooks@jjay.cuny.edu if you have a textbook/equipment hold.

As always, you must bring a state-issued or JJC student ID and a copy of your course schedule when you come to pick up your textbook(s).

Please DO NOT write or highlight in any of the textbooks as they will be used by other students in future classes. If you do so, you will be required to replace any damaged textbooks.                                                      

Please note: A block will be placed on students’ CUNYfirst account if books or iPads are not returned by the end of the return period. This block will prevent you from registering for courses, receiving financial aid, or requesting transcripts.

You must return all textbooks from previous semesters before you are able to receive textbooks for the current semester.

Before returning an iPad:

  • Disable FindMyiPhone on your iCloud account.
  • Locate charger and cable (Make sure it is an iPad charger NOT an iPhone charger).
  • Make sure your iPad is in an acceptable return condition.
  • If you don’t have your charger and all accessories, we won’t be able to take your iPad.
