We are happy to announce that registration for Merit Badge University for Spring 2018 will open soon! The website’s functionality is similar as it was in the Fall, although we are planning on adding features as time permits. Registration instructions are included below, but first we would like to go over some important dates:
January 31st: Registration opens
March 4th: Registration closes
(Even though the registration website says the 5th, registration closes on the 4th)
March 7th: Scout assignments sent out
March 14th: Logistical Email sent to Scoutmasters
March 15th: Payments due to the Louisville scout office
March 17th: Merit Badge University!
March 24th: Records released
While we have been able to keep the registration cost at $18, we have some prices for specific classes, outlined below:
We might add some additional classes that have an additional fee in the near future, so please look out for any additional emails and keep on eye on our website: mbuonline.org.
The cost of lunches will be different this semester due to increase costs at the university:
Youth (12 and under): $9.50
Adult (12 and over): $12.00
Furthermore, for this MBU we will have to require scouts to print out their materials and bring them to their classes, as unfortunately we are no longer able to fund the printing process.
If you have any questions — whether that be about registration, payments, or the price– please feel free to contact us. We are more than happy to clear up any confusion!
Please also have your scouts print out the liability waiver and bring it to MBU:
In Leadership, Friendship, and Service,
Merit Badge University Co-Chairs
Venturing Crew 492
Alpha Phi Omega- Gamma Theta
University of Colorado at Boulder
Registering a Troop and Entering Scout Preferences
This semester, we have a new website for registering scouts. To do so, please go to www.mbu.online.. In order to register your scouts, you must first register as a scoutmaster. To do so, follow the “Sign up” link on the home page.
In order to sign up for an account, you must fill in all of the fields (we will never share your contact information with anybody unless you give us permission. Your email address will be used for communication, and to login to your account).
On the new site you will get a warning like the one below about your profile needing to be approved by an administrator. You will not be able to add scouts to your profile until we approve you.
Once you have been approved, you will see the following page. Click on Manage troop to get started. This will take you to a page that can answer more of your questions. If any of your questions can’t be answered on that page, please let us know and we will do our best to answer them.
And that’s it! While we believe that the new website should be fully functional, this is our second semester using it so you may experience some problems that we haven’t anticipated. If you do have any problems, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to resolve the issue you are having as quickly as possible.
