Hi there! This site is actually for students applying to undergraduate schools, and not professional schools, so you likely won't get the responses you want here.

As an international student, you wouldn't be eligible for federal student loans anyways, but it's possible that private lenders will give you loans. Transferring dental schools is really difficult as the curriculum structure and sequence vary by school. It's possible that they might still admit you with failed classes, but it will likely decrease your chances, and you'll probably need to retake the failed courses at the new school. You should reach out to the dental schools you're interested in to ask about their financial aid and transfer policies.

Best of luck!
