Scouters can register for the college online. You do not need to be a commissioner to attend. If a degree has been earned from a previous college, you should register for the next degree in the series. There will be no separate sessions for unit-serving commissioners and roundtable commissioners. Everyone will learn together, and all programs will include topics relating to unit service as well as roundtable service. There are several instructors at each degree level, giving the participants the benefit of the knowledge of many experienced commissioners.
