Ok, I have absolutely no idea what is going on for my compiler errors. I am not worried about the last part where I have to put in the letter code. I am just trying to figure out how to make this compile correctly for line 43 to work. I am getting tired of easter egging with it and the tutor at my school is always busy because we are coming up upon finals week. This is not a final project, just another lab that I have to turn in. My partner and I have been struggling with this since last week Wednesday.

----jGRASP exec: javac -g Student.java

Student.java:43: 'else' without 'if'
else clear (minScore);
1 error

----jGRASP wedge2: exit code for process is 1.
----jGRASP: operation complete.

      public static final int MAX = 5;
      private String name;

		   this.name = name;

          numberScore should just be the average quiz score
          grade is either ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, or ‘F’ as we calculated
          in a previous lab.

if (minScore > scores[i]);

remove the ;

an if (just like a lot of other 'blocks') can be given a scope in two ways:
either you put the code between { /*enter code here */}
OR the 'block' ends at the first ;


Fantastic. Thank you very much. Now I have a couple more errors, but I can figure them out myself I am sure. I appreciate the help.
