COLLEGE ORGANIZATION

Commissioner College is a standard four-year curriculum in unit service training for commissioners, roundtable staff, and professional Scouters.

There are three degree program levels:

  • Bachelor-First-year participants.
  • Masters-Second-year participants.
  • Doctorate-Third and fourth-year participants.

The Commissioner College program is in the process of standardized by the BSA and the requirements for each degree have been revised. The BSA has also instituted a Doctorate of Commissioner Science Award. To assist participants in tracking their progress in attaining this award, we have developed a progress record form. These will be given to first-year participants and are available to all other participants that need one.

For the purpose of this College, the doctorate degree and the new doctorate of

commissioner science award are the same. The award has additional requirements that must be met in addition to the course work and it also requires tenure of five years as a registered commissioner, roundtable staff, or professional Scouter (see requirements on page 8). These additional requirements and the tenure must be met before the doctorate degree is awarded.

Two courses will be offered this year which can be counted toward either Doctorate or Masters, but will only be offered as Master level courses in the future.
