    }
  get level(){

     return "Freshmen";
    } else if (this.credits) >= 31 && (this.credits) <= 60) {
      return "Sophomore";
    } else if (this.credits) >= 61 && (this.credits) <= 90) {

  1. Freshmen actually should be Freshman. Notice that the other grade names are singular, not plural.
  2. You don't need any parentheses around this.credits; you just need them around each conditional. For example, if (this.credits > 90), but not if ((this.credits) > 90).

You are missing a bracket on each else if.

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;
    }

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();
    }

  get level(){
    if(this.credits <= 30) {
     return "Freshman";
    } else if ((this.credits) >= 31 && (this.credits) <= 60) {
      return "Sophomore";
    } else if ((this.credits) >= 61 && (this.credits) <= 90) {
      return "Junior";
    } else if ((this.credits) > 90) {
      return "Senior";
    }

  }
}
const student = new Student(3.9);
