    @MYOS1634 The main concern is losing access to freshman merit scholarships. There is still need-based aid. And this student has posted over and over again about GPA struggles, so is perhaps not a candidate for big merit at this time anyway.

    California does have a great community college system, but other states do, too. For a student who is a bit lost, it's easier to sample classes in multiple majors in CC, and the if drifting between majors adds an extra semester, it's at the lower CC tuition rate.
