How to Join

Membership in American Mensa can be obtained in two ways.

First, you can present prior evidence of a qualifying score (top 2% on a qualifying test). There is a one-time fee of $40 for this service and certified results must be submitted to American Mensa (not the local group). An online application is available.

The second option is to take the Mensa Admission Test. This is a proctored test lasting approximately 2 hours and it is offered by the local group for a fee of $40. Tests are usually scheduled in even months, often on the third Saturday, except for October and December – October Testing is on Mensa National Testing Day; December Testing is at the RGand is at 10 a.m.

Advance registration is appreciated!

Use the contact form below to contact our Proctor Coordinator for more information about testing. Or, to contact our Membership and Recruiting officers for additional information about joining Mensa.

* Please note that Mensa testing is for ages 14 and over. Further information about Mensa admission for children (testing or submiting prior evidence) can be found on the American Mensa site.

Want to boost your confidence?

The Mensa Home Test is designed to give you an idea what the Mensa Admission Test is like. It is available in either paper form (mailed upon request) or online. Either version costs $18. See the webpage for more information. The online test gives immediate results while the paper version more closely matches the test format used at Mensa testing sites.
