The university has developed a grade-point average calculator for our website. The tool is designed to assist students to calculate future grades needed to raise their GPA to a desired level. In addition to this direct link http://form.app.kutztown.edu/gpa/index.aspx, the calculator can be found via links from the faculty/staff and student landing pages on the KU website under online tools. Ingeniux users: if you would like to add a link to the calculator on an appropriate page on your site, it should be added as an external link.
