If you have contacted your professor, please give them a few days to get back to you. They are usually very good about timely responses. If the inquiry is regarding grades, it may take some time for all of the grading to be completed, so please be patient.

Most professors establish what form of communication they prefer, so that is probably the best way to get in contact with them. For those under deadlines to receive continuing education credit, we can not be responsible for your deadlines.
