I regret my major choice, what can I do?

I'm currently a second year undergraduate neuroscience major in a UC school. After a bit over a year in school I finally realized that, 1)I'm not interested in life science, and 2) my strength and passion are in physics and math.

I have been talking to advisors from all the colleges at my school about changing my major and so far the only response is "You cannot do a change of major out of your current college as a second year" (I am part of the social science college, I talked to college of natural science and college of engineering, same responses.)

I am on track with math and science classes(3.97GPA), and if I do take advantage of this summer, I will be able to finish the lower division physics classes.

I am still trying to work something out with my school about change of major, however, just in case that things turn to the worst(most likely), I am wondering what are some other options for me that will allow me to pursue a degree in what I am truly passionate about?(Physics or mechanical engineering.) Maybe transferring out of my current school?
