- Always try to find the answers to your questions before sending an email. Your teachers will not answer e-mails with questions that are clearly addressed in the syllabus, lecture notes, or class announcements.
- Include BCH341 in the subject line. Your teachers receive a large volume of e-mails and sometimes mistakenly delete genuine messages due to unclear subject lines.
- Begin with a proper salutation. Never call your professor by her/his first name. Use "dear professor", "hello professor", "hi professor"or simply "hello" or "good morning". It is OK to call your TAs by their first names, but still be professional.
- Use traditional rules of grammar, spelling and punctuation in your message. Don't use abbreviations associated with texting, and don't use expressions that you would never use in a professional setting.
- Close your message with a salutation Examples are: Thank you for answering my question, Thank you in advance, Thank you for your time, sincerely, or just Thank you.
- Reply to emails sent by your professors and TAs It is frustrating to spend time composing an email to a student and never hear back from them. Depending on the situation, you should reply with a "thank you so much for spending the time to look into this", "thank you!", "I got it, thanks so much", etc.
