Email Etiquette Adapted from NY Times article: "To: Professor@University.edu Subject: Why It’s all about me". Write from your college or university e-mail account That immediately lets your  professor see that your e-mail is legitimate and not spam.  Always Use a Proper Heading, Closing, and Signature .  Ex: Dear Professor ___, I’m  writing to you today because …. . Thanks, Zoe (French 1002, sec. 7) Don’t email your professor and tell them you won’t be in class.  Bringing unnecessary  attention to your absence only wastes your and your professor’s time. If there’s   documentation for the absence, bring it to your professor as soon as possible. Otherwise, if   you miss a class your professor will assume that it’s for a legitimate reason or that you’re   comfortable with the natural consequences of missing class. Don’t email your professor asking for their notes.  Your professors work hard to prepare  and deliver their lectures. If you fail to take notes, miss class, or lose your notes, contact   your peers first. Odds are there are 10-20 other students in that class that have notes. Don’t email your professor and copy the Dept Chair, Program Director or Dean.   Unless  you are emailing a glowing thank you, or congratulations message, any message you would   need to copy a professor’s supervisors on should be delivered in person.
