braker15,

Do you already have the calculations done, on paper or in something else, say Excel? If not, create them in Excel, so you know the logic you need and can test against something.

Then in infopath, you can use the help here, for formulas:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/HP010965321033.aspx

Since GPA is Credits (hours or semster hours) x grade = points. And total points divided by total credits earned, you should be able to complete this by arthemetic.

I would probably create 3 columns by however many rows of courses you will have. Column 1 could be grade, column 2 could be credit hours and column 3 would be your first calculation (column 1 times column 2). Then below your n-th row (if you have 10 rows, then on row 11) total column 2 and column 3. Then on row 12 in column 2 put GPA and column 3 the answer to row 11 column 3 divided by row 11 column 2 to be your GPA.

Sorry for all the column numbers and such, but the logic should work out just fine!

Hope this helps,
Kevin

braker15,

This was kind of what I had in mind, which is a great example of what I was trying to propose. I would just change the "Grade" to be numbers, for the calculations.
