Merit Badge University 2017 is Alpha Phi Omega-Kappa Chapter’s annual Boys Scouts of America merit badge event. The purpose of this event is to support BSA learning objectives by providing local scouts an opportunity to earn merit badges in a variety of subjects. The idea being that the university and group setting combine to augment each other: the university setting by supporting merit badge courses with institutional resources, and the group setting by allowing scouts the opportunity to learn and share information with their peers. Merit Badge University 2017 is a two day event. The first session will take place on March 4, 2017. And the second on March 25th, 2017. In order to properly complete a badge, scout attendance at both sessions will be mandatory.

Frequently Asked Questions
Once we pay for a class, does that guarantee a spot or is it possible that a class could be closed by the time we get the paperwork to you?
Once you purchased a ticket for a class, you’re guaranteed a spot in the class.

How can I check class availability?
While we can’t give a precise count of the number of seats left in a class, if tickets are still available for purchase, then that means that the class still has seats available.

It says MBU is a two-day event, does that mean my scout can do a full-day badge on the first session, and a different full-day badge for the second?

No. All classes are conducted during both MBU sessions. This means morning classes take place during the morning sessions of the 4th and tte 25th, afternoon classes during the afternoon sessions, and full-day classes, during both the morning and afternoon sessions of both dates.

My scout can only attend the morning/afternoon session of MBU, is that O.K.?

No. Scouts registering for Half-Day Classes must register for both a Morning and an Afternoon session class.

My scout can only attend one of the days of MBU, can they earn partial credit towards a badge?

No. Attendance at both MBU sessions is mandatory to receive credit for a badge, however, for students who unable to complete a badge, partial credit will be given out based on progress achieved.
