CourseM v1.00

Here is a program I wrote to calculate your college GPA.

As opposed to online GPA calculators (like this one), the courses you enter are saved. Because of this, you do not need to re-enter them every time you want to calculate your GPA. See grades.txt for an example.


This program is targeted towards students looking to transfer to a CSU or UC, but will also work for other college students.

The process is really simple:
1. Unpack the downloaded .zip file to a folder
2. Modify the included file "grades.txt"
3. Run the program
4. If you find bugs or have suggestions, feel free to post a comment here or contact me

Download here

PS: I can't guarantee the accuracy of the program, but I have used it to several times to calculate my GPA and have found no problems.

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hi Alisha,

      CSU = California State University. UC = University of California. Here is a Wikipedia page describing both.

      I'm surprised you found this post! It's something I wrote more than two years ago.

      Anyhow, if you find issues with, check out this GPA calculator maintained by San Francisco State University (ironically, a CSU).
