Switching Programs (York to Ryerson)

Hi, this is my first post on RDF and I have a burning question that I just can't seem to find definite answers to.
I've accepted my offer to York's English program and I'm having second thoughts about it already, even before the school year has even started.
I am planning to apply to Ryerson's Business Management program after figuring out how the whole 'switching process' works.
Does anyone know the conditions in which I can switch to Ryerson's program (eg. prerequisite courses, minimum uni/ high school marks) ?
How easy is it to make the transition? I've heard numerous cases where universities intentionally make it hard to switch just to swindle students out of a few thousand bucks.
Any advice/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I'd probably just stay at York and switch majors. York has an internship program I believe if you maintain a certain GPA (which I feel is easier to do than Ryerson).

Once you've done your first year of uni credits I'm pretty sure they won't even look at your high school marks for admissions purposes anymore.

Do you know which business program in particular that has a co-op placement/ internship? I was considering Business Econ, Finance, Financial and Business Econ. or HRM (BAS).

Contact the school's department. I know the BAS program has internships tho for majority of it's majors ie. accounting.
