How To Join Mensa
The top 2% is one person in every 50. Many don't realize that they qualify and haven't considered membership. You're here because you have at least thought about it. That's a pretty good start actually.
Joining Mensa gives you membership in:
- Oregon Mensa - (700 members) or any of over 120 local chapters throughout the USA
- American Mensa Limited (AML) - 50,000 members.
- Mensa International Limited (MIL) with chapters in all English speaking countries throughout the world and a great many where English is not a major language. - 100,000 members.
To join Mensa, simply prove to us that you scored at or above the top 2% on any one of the
over 200 aptitude tests whose results we recognize and accept.
Proof Comes From:
Mensa will send you an invitation to join as soon as you send copy of your qualifying test score to our National Office alnog with the a small fee that covers having your test report reviewed a staff psychologist.
A test from any time in your life will do the job. However the tests do change over the years, so the scores that qualify on a given test may differ depending on the date you took the test.
A copy of the test score report, from a test you took at some point in your life.
Prior Evidence Is...
A private Psychologist.
A test given by one of our Certified volunteer member-proctors.
"Prior Evidence" is Mensa-speak for test results that come from anyone other than a certified Mensa testing proctor.
Our Local Tests
"Prior Evidence" is a certified copy of your test results.
That test could have been taken in 6th grade or last week. You have probably taken aptitude tests all your life: for school, for the military or for an employer. If you were in a TAG program, you were surely there because of a high test score. Some of these tests will qualify you for Mensa admission, some do not.
