Want to join Mensa? Curious?

Testing takes a little less than two hours, and consists of two tests featuring questions involving various skills, including logic and deductive reasoning. A score at or above the 98th percentile on either of the tests will qualify you for an invitation to join Mensa. To take the test, you must be 14 or older, and any test-taker who has not yet reached the age of 18 will need the permission of a parent or guardian. The testing fee is $60.00, and may be paid with a Mensa voucher purchased online at http://www.us.mensa.org/join/ that you print out and bring with you to the test session. Please bring photo identification to the test site. Pencils will be provided. You do not need to bring anything else. Mensa also offers culture-fair, non-language tests for those for whom English is not a primary language.

Anyone wishing to take these tests should contact the Testing Coordinator, currently Rebecca Raymond, at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Testing is typically held monthly and announced about 1 month before the date.

Submitting prior test scores for acceptance: If you think that you might qualify for membership based on a test that you have already taken, read the FAQs are on the US Mensa website: http://www.us.mensa.org/join/testscores/ Prior evidence is the only way someone under 14 can become a member of Mensa.

General testing information: To RSVP for a test session and to get location information, please email our Testing Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.

In the unlikely event that more people show up for a test than can be accommodated, those who have pre-registered will receive preference over walk-ins. Also, it will allow you to be notified in the unlikely event that a test session must be canceled.

Good luck!
