Submit Qualifying Test Scores
Prospective members can apply by submitting evidence of scores from prior intelligence testing.
Many people find this a quick and easy way to qualify for Mensa membership, as they often qualify on tests they have already taken at some point in their lives.
Visit the Submit qualifying testing page on the American Mensa website for more details!
If you're interested in becoming a member of Mensa, our certified, volunteer Proctors welcome you to schedule a supervised testing session in your area!
The Mensa Admission Test takes two hours to complete and includes two tests featuring questions involving logic and deductive reasoning. If you score at or above the 98th percentile on either of the two tests, you'll qualify and be invited to join Mensa.
See more information below about testing!
If you are under 18 or a parent of a gifted child, please visit the Mensa Website for information on the benefits of Mensa for young Mensans and procedures for joining.
Please note that American Mensa cannot test individuals younger than 14 years of age on the test date; however, these prospective members may submit evidence of prior testing to qualify.
