How to join Mensa

There are two ways to join Mensa - submitting prior evidence or taking the Mensa Admissions Test.

Prior Evidence

Applicants may present evidence of a score in the top 2% of the population on a supervised, standardized intelligence test.

Tests given by an institution/agency/clinic must include the full name of the test, the score, and percentile rank. This documentation must be on institution/agency/clinic letterhead and signed by the psychologist responsible for the testing, along with the psychologist's license/certification number issued by the state in which the psychologist practices.

Evidence from a school transcript must be a school document with a seal. An armed forces record must be a notarized copy.

All prior evidence will be appraised individually, and Mensa reserves the right to make the final determination of the acceptability of the test. The non-refundable, one-time evaluation fee is $40.

Please check the list of acceptable test scores.

Mensa Admissions Test

Applicants may take the Mensa Admissions Test battery, which takes approximately two hours to complete, and is composed of two tests featuring questions involving logic and deductive reasoning.

The American Mensa Admissions Tests are given for the purpose of admission into Mensa. A score at the 98th percentile on either of two tests qualifies you for Mensa membership.
