MBU - Merit Badge University - 2019
Welcome to Merit Badge University
Last day to register or make changes is January 31
When MBU began 22 years ago - less than 100 Scouts attended. Today, over 1,500 Scouts from all over the United States attend this single-day event - making our MBU one of the largest in the Nation. Whether this is your first visit to MBU or you are a veteran - please read the instructions carefully - as some of our registration procedures have changed.
New for 2019 - Girls who are registered in Scouts BSA Troops may attend MBU and take merit badge classes.
Ready to get started? First, review the Class Schedule and read through the Event Class Catalog. These documents contain class times, descriptions, requirements and special instructions from our Instructors. Take some time and review the Frequently Asked Questions document too. It contains a ton of information for parents - whether you're an MBU veteran or a 1st timer. Next, click the Register button. Follow the instructions carefully, enter your classes and make your payment. That's it!
Here's the fine print. Registration and payment are online ONLY. Registration fee includes a hot lunch and a MBU Patch. Mail-in payments will not be accepted. Payments may not be made at the Scout Shops. We have added electronic check processing this year. Please follow all payment instructions carefully. Registration fees are NOT REFUNDABLE under any circumstances. There will be no on-site/day-of registrations. Payment must be received prior to the date of the event. A registration without payment does not constitute enrollment in a class. You will receive a registration confirmation email as well as a receipt-for-payment email. If you have questions pertaining to registration or payment, please review our Frequently Asked Questions document first, pose your question on our Facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 24 hours for one of our volunteers to respond.
