19.To choose the “paper option” students must complete TWO steps: (1) Make arrangements with the professor to write a paper instead of taking the final exam. (2) Request enrollment in the paper option section of the course by sending an e-mail to and make “Paper Option” the subject line. This request must be made no later than--mid March for the Winter Term and mid November for the Fall term--unless an earlier deadline has been established by the professor. The e-mail should contain the following information:
  • Your FULL name (no nicknames)
  • Your EMPLID number (listed on your U of M ID card)
  • Professor’s FULL name (remember, we have many professors with the same last name and even the same first initial)
  • 3-digit course number
  • Course title
  • 5-digit class number of the section to drop (the section in which you are enrolled)
  • 5-digit class number of the section to add (the section displaying footnote #4)
  • Term in which you are making the section change
