Title: Over here you type in title of your subject. (Test 1, Midterm, Exam, Assignment 5…etc)
Subject: Over here you type in what concern or problem you might have (Due Date Issue, Missed Test Issue, HW Problem #45…etc). Remember to keep it brief, no more then 5 words.
Example: Boston College-MTH140-Assignment 4-HW Problem #45
The Text Body Field Try to keep things simple, clean and to point. By that I mean no 2 page emails or fancy fonts and color, remember your first priority is to convey your message not to show off your email editing skills. Start off with writing Professors name (Prof C.Mcgill, Prof U.Stan…etc). Move on to subject of your email, as a reminder restate Course Code and Title Field (During Monday’s MTH140 class you stated for Assignment 4). The next line should state problem or concern. Remember to provide details and avoid repetitions. Its best to end email with a salutatory statement (Thank You, Yours Truly..etc) and use your name, student number and College or University name as signature.
Example: Prof C. Mcgill, During Monday’s MTH140 class you stated for Assignment 4 question #41 to use second derivative theorem. However, I am having trouble as to how to find delta X? In particular, during situation when time is 3 seconds and delta Y is 0. Do we set delta Y to Ymin and solve from there?

Things to Keep In Mind - Give a minimum of one weekday for Professors to reply back, before sending another email. - Avoid sending multiple duplicate emails at any one given time. - Try to send emails during weekdays and if possible during Professors office hours. - Try to be respectful and Professional (i.e. no offensive language, spell check…etc). - Avoid taking out frustration by spamming Professors email box.
