### Introduction

The GPA Calculator for Grad School is a versatile tool designed for graduate students to calculate their Grade Point Average (GPA). This article introduces a simple calculator that considers course names, credits, and grades to provide an accurate GPA calculation.

### Formula

The calculator uses a standard GPA calculation formula, where each grade is converted to its respective GPA value. The total quality points are calculated by multiplying each course's GPA by its credit value. The GPA is then obtained by dividing the total quality points by the total credits.
