Past Test Scores
The majority of members join using one of around 150 standardized tests they took in the past. Click the button to find out if you already have a qualifying score.
This option is administered by companies that provide standardized test services, such as those for professional certifications. This is the most flexible as you pick what works best in your schedule based on the list of available openings from the company.
This is currently the only testing option in Minnesota. There are five locations around the state shown on the map to the right.
Local Proctored Testing
Our proctors are members who received training and certification to administer the Mensa admission tests. Testing sessions include a group of applicants in the same room. Note that tests are evaluated by American Mensa; proctors do not score your test or know your result.
These were halted by the pandemic. We are working on starting up proctored testing in the fall of 2022.
Minnesota Mensa Proctored Testing Schedule
We are working on scheduling a testing session. Check back or contact the Testing Coordinator to be added to the notification list.
Minneapolis / St. Paul Area
Address to Be Determined
You will need to purchase a testing voucher and register with the Testing Coordinator. No walk-ins allowed for the initial return of proctored testing.
