Understanding the USA Registration Options

Not sure what to do?

If this is your first year, the best course of action is to become a degree seeking student and choose the College of Scouting Arts. The classes are laid out in a manner that has been designed to take the adult leader through the Scouting program.

College of Scouting Arts – This breakdown of classes and degrees addresses the units. You will find classes that help leaders understand the methods of running a successful program from the Den, Pack, Patrol, Troop, and Crew level. Work through Bachelor, Master, Post Graduate and complete a project after the third year to earn your Doctorate. Choose Degree Seeking Student and let us know where you are in the Scouting program.

Saturday-only participants – Non-degree Program – For those experiencing USA for the day only. Select courses that interest you during the six class periods. You will not earn a degree but can earn a Participation Certificate. If you plan to attend a second year, it is possible to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in two years.

College of Advanced Studies – This college is for those who are interested in becoming an instructor at USA, teach local trainings, or be on a future Wood Badge, NYLT, or USA Staff. This class is usually started after completing your Doctorate of the College of Scouting Arts.

College of Continuing Studies – Have you already done it all? Have you met your goals? Are you teaching a class and have some time in between your classes? Continuing studies is the place for finding electives, experimental courses, and advanced skills courses.
