Spring and Summer 2017 Textbook and iPad Collection and Distribution Schedule

iPad repairThis is the schedule for the Spring 2017 Collection and Summer 2017 distribution of textbooks and iPads.  Public Management Student Services is located at Suite 523 Haaren Hall (T- building).

We will be collecting textbooks/tablets from the Spring 2017 and distributing for Summer 2017 from Wednesday May 10 , 2017 until Thursday June 15, 2017.

As always, you must bring an ID and a copy of your course schedule before you are allowed to borrow textbooks or an iPad.

MPA students will complete this textbook 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 Public Management Student Services staff.  

MPA students in the MPA-PPA or MPA-IO online programs, who do not live in NYC, have the option of getting their textbooks mailed to them, and returning them by mail.

  • To obtain books they should complete the textbook form and scan/email the form 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.
