Submit qualifying testing
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.
Results from tests given by an institution, agency or clinic must include the full name of the test, the score and the percentile rank. This documentation must be on the letterhead of the institution, agency or clinic; it also must be signed by the psychologist responsible for the testing and must include the psychologist's license/certification number as issued by the state in which the psychologist practices.
Evidence from a school transcript must be a school document with a seal, and an armed forces record must be a notarized copy.
All evidence of prior testing will be appraised individually, and Mensa reserves the right to make the final determination of the acceptability of the test. The nonrefundable, one-time evaluation fee is $40.
Even if you don't think you would qualify with prior evidence, you may want to review this short list of qualifying scores. You may remember another test you took in grade school, college or the military.
American Mensa does not accept unsupervised testing as proof of eligibility,
specifically unsupervised testing administered electronically or via Internet-based tests.
