I have a class project coming up, the professor asked us to form groups of 6. Everyone in class seems to know each other and have already started forming groups. Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone in that class. I would like to know how can I email my professor about assigning me to a group? I am an international student so I am not really sure how to address this.
Keep it simple:
Dear Prof. X,
I'm Hannah Y (ID n. 12345), an international student in your class XYZ. Since I don't know anyone in the class, could you please assign me to one of the project groups?
I have international students in my classes and such emails are not uncommon. The important thing is to provide all the pieces of information needed to identify you and the course (professors usually have several).
how can I email my professor about assigning me to a group?
Don't seek complicated solutions for a simple problem.
Find the professor's e-mail address online.
Open your e-mail client and write the letter to him/her along the following lines: "Dear Prof. XXX, I could not get into a group myself; please assign me to a group. Sincerely yours, Hannah ____"
