I am an undergraduate student of a fairly small university (around 8,000 undergrads) and I'm not getting any response from my Department chair when I ask for some help with changing around my classes. Currently, for next semester, I'm registered in a specific class at a certain time (we can call this class A) and I want to move to a different time slot of that same class (class B).
My major is an applied science and so there aren't too many students who require the chair's attention. At first, I was polite in emailing him. I said something along the lines of...
"Hi Dr. blah blah
My name is blah blah and I've run into a bit of snag with my schedule next semester and I am unable to take class A because of the time it is offered, can you switch me out of Class A and into class B?
I understand that he is a very busy guy, especially around this time of the semester but c'mon. It's been 3 weeks since I first reached out to him and I've sent 1 email per week. How do I get his attention and also be polite about it, even though it's really beginning to frustrate me?
P.S. I have tried to catch him in his office hours to no avail. P.S.S first time asking a question on here - any helpful criticism regarding the way it was asked is appreciated as well.
