Welcome Guide

Welcome to JBA!

As we prepare for JBA 2022, you can take a look at the welcome packet from 2021 which contains all of the information and forms that were filled out for this past summer.  It will be updated as we get closer to 2022.  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: jba@truman.edu or 660-785-5384.

JBA Welcome Guide 2021

This is your guide to all things JBA. Information about check in, check out, what to bring, rules and polices – they can be found in the Welcome Guide.

Check In Sign-Up Form

Sign up for a time to check in to JBA. Due to social distancing, we’re working to keep lines at check in as small as possible.

Course Textbooks

Some courses require textbooks, which need to be purchased prior to arrival at JBA. You purchase books online through our University Bookstore. If books become unavailable or out of stock through the University Bookstore, they can be purchased elsewhere.

NOTE: When purchasing books through the University Bookstore, select “curbside pickup” – we’ll pick them up for you and have them for you at Check In!

NOTE: Please put your student’s name in the comments box when you purchase.

Student I.D. Request Form

All students attending JBA need a Student I.D. card. Fill out the request form at least 7 days prior to your arrival at JBA. Student I.D. cards will be distributed at check in.
