Sample Emails to Professors
Subject Line: Emily Jones - CHEM A103 - Missed Class
Dear Professor Smith,
I was unable to attend Chemistry class yesterday (Tuesday, August 30). I understand from a classmate that a handout regarding the next lab assignment was distributed. The syllabus indicates that your office hours are between 1:00 - 3:00 pm on Wednesdays. Would you be available in your office this Wednesday so I can receive the lab assignment and ask for clarification on the material presented in class?
I appreciate your time and look forward to speaking with you soon.
Subject Line: Jack Wilson - ENGL A111 - Questions about Assignment
Dear Professor Peterson,
I have two brief questions regarding our most recent essay assignment in ENGL A111, which is due on Monday, October 7.
- I understand we are required to use four outside sources for this essay. Can we utilize all online resources for our research?
- My notes do not specify which format to use for citations. Do you prefer MLA format?
I appreciate your time, and I look forward to completing this assignment.
