I need help with this question, i've been at it for hours now.

The goal of this project is to create a class that will calculate the student grade for CSC 171. The users of the application will provide the program with their current points received and current total points possible for each of the categories listed in the syllabus. The program will then calculate the course percentage given these parameters, and assign a letter grade based on the standard letter grade system...... a while loop must be included.

syllabus reference;
lab 10%
Weekly Assignments 10%
Projects 40%
Exams 40%

needs a print menu, pause menu.

professor says its meant to look like this:

-------------------- Current Settings --------------------
Homework, Labs, Quizzes: 0 out of 0 points
Projects: 0 out of 0 points
Midterms: 0 out of 0 points
Final: 0 out of 0 points
------------------------ Main Menu -----------------------
1) Enter points for Homework, Labs, Quizzes
2) Enter points for Projects
3) Enter points for Midterms
4) Enter points for Final
5) Display current course percentage and letter grade
6) Quit program
Enter choice>

What is not working out, what help do you need? Have you looked at The Java™ Tutorials[^]?

If you do not understand you homework assignment, ask your professor. That is his job, to teach you and help you when you have a problem. Additionally, this is not a question.

To get help on what you have done, you need to show it and explain the problem.
Without showing code, the kind of help you ask is a "do my HomeWork" help.

We do not do your HomeWork.
HomeWork is not set to test your skills at begging other people to do your work, it is set to make you think and to help your teacher to check your understanding of the courses you have taken and also the problems you have at applying them.
Any failure of you will help your teacher spot your weaknesses and set remedial actions.
So, give it a try, reread your lessons and start working. If you are stuck on a specific problem, show your code and explain this exact problem, we might help.

As programmer, your job is to create algorithms that solve specific problems and you can't rely on someone else to eternally do it for you, so there is a time where you will have to learn how to. And the sooner, the better.
When you just ask for the solution, it is like trying to learn to drive a car by having someone else training.
Creating an algorithm is basically finding the maths and make necessary adaptation to fit your actual problem.
