Submitting Prior Test Scores to
Qualify for Mensa Membership

  Membership in Mensa is open to persons who score at or above the 98th percentile on any one of a number of standardized intelligence tests. You can become a member of American Mensa in one of two ways:

bullet If you are age 14 or older, you can take a supervised standardized test administered by one of our certified member volunteers.
bullet Anyone, regardless of age, can submit evidence of prior testing in the form of scores from a supervised standardized test, such as the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale, the Miller Analogies Test, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Army or Navy General Classification Test (GCT).

  Prospective members can apply by submitting evidence of scores from prior intelligence quotient (IQ) 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. Test scores do not expire; they are acceptable forever, as long as they meet the Mensa requirements. To see a partial list of acceptable test scores, please visit

  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 $45 (may be subject to change).

  For more information about submitting prior evidence for membership in Mensa, visit the American Mensa web site or contact the Piedmont Area Mensa Membership Chair, Wanda Tripp, e-mail or telephone (864) 630-5547.
