Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
The Graduate School of the University of Washington is administratively responsible for all graduate study. In addition to applying to the Graduate Endodontics Program, applicants must also submit a separate application to the UW Graduate School and must meet the requirements set forth by the Graduate School. You can find information on the Graduate School’s policies and procedures, along with a link to their on-line application form at this address:www.grad.washington.edu/admissions.
Currently, four students are accepted into the program each year. July 15 is the application deadline for admission into the program for the following academic year (in June).
There are no stipends available. Applicants must be prepared to meet all expenses, including tuition of $19,444 per academic year or $4,861 per quarter for Washington State residents. Non-resident tuition is $36,222 per academic year or $9,068 per quarter. The cost of a clinical photographic setup is about $1000.

Notes for International Applicants:
International applicants are those who currently hold or expect temporary U.S. visas. U.S. permanent residents (i.e. Green Card holders or immigrants) are not considered international applicants. The Graduate School has additional requirements for international applicants. These requirements include GRE scores (from graduates of dental schools not accredited by the ADA), TOEFL scores (non-native English speakers only), an additional set of transcripts, and a statement of financial ability. Please carefully review the information on their website:www.grad.washington.edu/admissions/faq/international.shtml
Completion of the two-year UW Graduate Endodontics Program meets the educational requirements for dental licensure in Washington. For information regarding licensure laws in other states, please visit the ADA’s website.
