MTSU Merit Badge University

February 24, 2018

Registration opens October 18th

Cost is $15

This is a GREAT opportunity for Scouts to earn that one Eagle required that has slipped passed them, or to get a First Class Scout a nudge to Life.  We provide food on campus at Corlew Dining Hall and a patch for your experience.  We hope that you will join us in February!

Click on Forms in the menu and read the application packet before registering.

After clicking "Register Now," search for "merit badge" to find available programs.

Construction alert: Middle Tennessee is under construction from Main Street to Greenland Drive. Please allow an extra 15-30 minutes in your arrival time to compensate for the extra navigation in driving.

Please be advised, that some of the merit badges have different age requirements and restrictions:

  • Environmental Science Scouts must be 14 years of age.
  • Space Exploration can register younger scouts.  Any Scout signing up for Space Exploration under the age of 13 or not yet First Class, must have a parent present at all times.
  • Aviation requires transportation to the Airport and the parent to stay there all day.  Pizza is offered to the scouts and parents.  Parents are not required to pay MBU fee if Scout is taking Aviation.

Special Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather, MBU may be cancelled and notifcation made via this website and emails to registered units. Due to limited availability of facilities, we do not have a "snow day" scheduled. If you feel it unsafe to travel, we will refund your fees even if MBU is not cancelled.
