When I met with my advisor we used the official GPA calculator made for my school by putting the required grades and number of credits in. I'm taking 18 classes this semester all worth 3 credits each. I would need a 3.3 or higher this semester for my cumulative gpa to reach 2.033.
The numbers work for me. Consider 6 completed semesters with an average of 1.8. Then the OP will go this spring and summer. If the number of credits are roughly the same for each time period (presumably with 18 credits now and fewer than that in the summer) getting a 3.3 in the spring and summer will put his average over a 2.0. The calculator is a standard advising tool.
