UC to CC In 2nd Year

Hi there,
Not sure if this is the proper sub-forum. However, I'm going to give it a shot! I am currently a 2nd year student at UCSD in my Fall quarter. However, a few weeks ago I was hospitalized for over two weeks after a suicide attempt. Needless to say, I don't know if I can continue at UCSD. I am currently going to finish this quarter (all of my professors are amazing), but I plan to then perhaps go to a CC for spring semester. Yet I have a caveat: I sent in a transfer application to UCB and UCD because I was planning on living with my support system in NorCal after I finished this year at UCSD. But now I cannot finish this year at UCSD because of financial reasons, living arrangements, and the fact that it is taking a toll on my mental health. So, what should I do as a second year student? Should I basically start over? Would I even be considered for a UC again, or would I have to go to a CSU? I have nearly finished my general education classes; however, the classes I plan to take at the CC are the identical ones I was going to take at UCSD: which would be general chem, o-chem, and a few other classes.
Another question if anyone knows: how would this affect my financial aid?

    You don’t want to retake duplicate courses.

    Get a letter of reciprocity from UCSD so that will take care of your general ed no matter which UC you end up at.

    Next it’s just a matter of getting any major req completed that aren’t already done (on assist.org).

    Keep in mind they add up ALL the units - UC plus CCC and there are unit ceilings: Davis is 80 semester, Berkeley is 90. You don’t want to go over those.

    Switching UCs is done a lot, so that is not a concern, assuming you’re competitive. This will give you info in that: https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/infocenter/transfers-major

    I’m sorry you are going through struggles and it might be in your best interest to take some time off from school. Taking time off will not hinder you. All you need to take is what you need. (You will not be eligible for TAG as it would likely put you over the unit ceilings.)

    Get well. Your health is #1.
