Can I reapply to UCs that rejected me with a different major?

I’ve been rejected by three UC’s; UC irvine, UCLA UC davis :(( due to my low gpa, i was on the waiting list for irvine but still got dumped. GPA 2.9
I want to change my major now from international relations to a English major also i want to raise my current GPA in community college and reapply. if i take english classes and raise gpa to 3.5 maybe i have a chance.
Is it possible to do this and will this change of major affect my admissions if I reapply?
