I am currently a junior but I am really unhappy in my major. I have already changed my major 3 times, but I struggled with chem classes, couldn't get into some required classes on time because they filled up before I could enroll and I absolutely am bored to death in my political science classes. The problem is I am already at 89 credits; however, 50 something of those credits are from IB/AP high school testing. I'm scared because I don't want to be cut off from financial aid if I have too many credit hours but no degree. Normally, I would just stick out poli sci but I am so disinterested in my classes and I don't want to go to law school anymore. Does anyone know the policy on this? I go to a florida public university. I pay for my education on my own so fin aid is essential. I really want to be speech pathologist instead of a political scientist. I am scheduled to graduate in 2 years anyway (2012) so I wouldn't be THAT far behind if I do switch, I'm just concerned about my hours and if they're going to cut me off at 120 credit hours.
