Courses and credits can be addedto the course list. The student can enter their probable grade that will be earned to tabulate their termGPA.17

Advise CalculatorThis calculator is the easiest to use. The student need only provide their desired GPA. It is used to figureout how a student can raise/lower their GPA using actual grades as advice. While it is fairly general, it ismore specific than the graduation calculator.The system will advise the student whether or not the desired GPA is achievable and what is necessaryto make that happen.18
