Fall 2017 DT Textbook and iPad Distribution Schedule

Stacked booksThis is the schedule for Fall 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 Summer 2017 and distributing for Fall 2017 from Monday August 14, 2017 to Saturday, September 16, 2017.

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

MPA on-campus based 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 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 DT Textbooks Form and scan/email the 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.
