Academic Probation

So I had a really hard time keeping up with my classes in my first year at UCI. First quarter I got a GPA of 1.6, and although I worked really hard to get a higher GPA, I only managed to get a 1.8. I worked really hard to get into this school. Should I consider dropping out of UCI and look for a different school? I’m thinking a CSU if I change schools. Will they accept me with this GPA? What other options do I have? Can I switch majors if to stay in UCI?

You’ll need to get your GPA up to transfer anywhere but a CC. Assuming you tried, a major change is probably a good idea. Meet with your academic advisor to what your options are.
