Temporary Transition Rules for Females and First-time Joining Boys Entering Scouts BSA
  1. Beginning on February 1, 2019, youth 16 years of age or older, but not yet 18, who register as members of Scouts BSA on or before December 31, 2019 may request extensions to complete the Eagle Scout Award requirements after they turn 18 years of age.
  2. Requests for extensions must be received no later than thirty (30) days after turning 18 years of age. Only the National Council may grant extensions. The actual extension will be based upon the individual’s registration date and age at the time of the request and will provide not more than twenty-four* months from the date of initial registration to complete all requirements.
  3. In the interest of fairness, these temporary transition rules apply to all youth joining Scouts BSA during 2019–both girls and first-time joining boys.

* - [Editor's note: this was originally published by BSA on October 3, 2019 as 24 months, but was changed on January 30, 2019 to 22 months. On February 1, 2019, after significant feedback from Scouters, BSA reset the maximum length of an Eagle Scout extension length back to 24 months, as was first announced in October. ]
