Merit Badge University is an advancement opportunity open to Scouts in troops, crews or ships. A Scout has the opportunity to work on requirements for several merit badges. 

These are not give-away merit badges. Each Scout is expected to fulfill all the requirements by reading the merit badge book before the event, attending the class, completing prerequisites, and to participate fully during the class in order to receive full credit for the requirements offered. All Scouts are required to bring blue cards signed by their Scoutmaster in order to work on merit badges. 

Adult participation is needed to offer this event. Every unit with Scouts participating is expected to provide volunteers.


The registration fee is $15 per Scout and includes lunch, supply costs and a participation patch. Lunch will be a Chick-fil-a sandwich, bottle of water and chips. 

Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Merit badge class sizes are limited.

Important: Before registering, read the prerequisites below. 

  • Check your Scout's school and troop calendar for conflicts. 
  • Check which merit badges the Scout has already completed. 
  • Have the Scout discuss which merit badges they should sign up for with their Scoutmaster or troop advancement chair. 

Registration is typically completed by parents, but can also be completed by the troop leadership. Registration is completed online with credit card, electronic check or PayPal. Council refund policy.
