Greetings And Welcome!
We want to welcome you to the Fall 2022 Southeast Louisiana Council’s College of Commissioner Science Course Weekend, and to provide you with important information through this College Course Brochure.

The College of Commissioner Science is an advanced training opportunity for all BSA Commissioners, Council and Unit Leaders in all Area/Regional Councils.  It is focused on the Curriculum Pathway to the Bachelor’s Degree, the Master’s Degree, and the Doctorate Degree in Commissioner Science.

This brochure contains the Course registration link, College Staff, Degree pre-requisites, Course Descriptions, our Preliminary Schedule Overview, Directions to the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and Available Lodging information.

This Year’s College Highlights

•     A specific Dean has been assigned to each Degree Program for a more focused emphasis on the level of training of each course.

•     Each degree follows the current Commissioner of Science course requirements with emphasis on achieving the Doctorate of Commissioner Science Degree.

•     We have added 8 additional Master’s Courses to the Course Outline for those, who may be looking for additional Master’s courses, not previously taken.

•     We have added 8 Doctoral courses to the program, including four courses focused on the development of the Doctoral Thesis/Project and a new course “Recruiting for Diversity”.

•     The faculty of the Doctoral Candidacy Program are all Doctorates of Commissioner Science.

•     A  cracker  barrel  Social  is  planned  for  Friday  night  (16th)  for  those  participants,  who  arrive  on  Friday afternoon and would like to get to know the staff early.

•     Following the Program on Saturday (17th), a closing dinner and Graduation is planned for all participants.

•     Registration for all participants and staff can be made on-line through a provided link to our SELA Council Website, and a separate lodging  link will be provided for those who will be staying on Campus Friday and/or Saturday  night.   All Registration and Lodging Fees  should be submitted by  September  3,  2022,  to avoid paying a late fee.

Cancellation Policy
The following policy statement is applicable to all council and district activities where a fee is collected by the Southeast Louisiana Council. Online convenience fees (if applicable) are not refundable. All activities are considered non-refundable, unless there is a medical emergency or a death in the immediate family. Refund requests will only be considered if made in writing. A service charge of twenty-five percent (25%) of the activity fee will be assessed on all refunds to cover the costs incurred in preparation of the activity and processing the refund. Written refund requests must be submitted prior to the start of any event. Any requests after the activity will be considered only for personal illness or family emergencies. No refund requests will be accepted after ten (10) days following the end of the activity. Consideration for a full (minus charges and costs incurred) refund will be considered for special hardship cases and for advanced-level training courses such as Wood Badge. For major activities that require a non-refundable deposit, such as council contingents to the National Jamboree and Philmont, a full refund less the non-refundable deposit will be considered based on the time of the request and the council's ability to fill the slot with another participant. If the slot is not able to be filled, no refund will be available. No refunds of any fees are available until 30 days after the event. Refund checks will be issued to the individual or entity paying the original fee within 30 days of receipt of the request pending its approval. Fees are only transferable within the same unit to a Scout or adult leader not currently registered for that specific activity. If an activity is canceled or postponed due to weather, every effort will be made to reschedule the activity. If an activity is canceled and the participant cannot participate during the alternate date, the full fee will be refunded minus any service fees and costs incurred by the event prior to the cancellation. This amount may vary from event to event. Send all refund requests to the Program Director at:
