    An email to a university

    Dear Math Department:

    Due to the current pandemic, some universities have waived off GRE requirements for some of the graduate programs they offer, so I am wondering if the GRE requirement will be waived for applicants to the Master of Math program.

    Best Regards,
    XXXXX

    Does it sound professional and polite?
    Thanks.

    Thanks. Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you, by clicking on the "Thank" button.
    Please note my corrections above. We don't tend to use "Dear" before anything except someone's name. "FAO" means "For the attention of".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: An email to a university

    It is usually "applicants for (not to) a program". I have only heard of Master of Science (major in Maths), not a degree called Master of Math.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
