Advancement Updates, Including Time Extensions

Effective Jan. 1, 2021, local councils will have the authority to grant limited extensions of time to complete Eagle, Quartermaster, or Summit requirements. These extensions are available only to youth members who qualify under the three tests listed in the attached advance copy of topics 9.0.4.0, 9.0.4.1, 9.0.4.2, and forms 11.2.0.0 External Linkand 11.2.1.0 External Linkfrom the 2021 edition of the Guide to Advancement (GTA), which will be published soon. Advance copies of these topics and forms are also published at www.scouting.org/advancementExternal Link.

The three tests are laid out in topic 9.0.4.0External Link. The process for requesting and reviewing a time extension is outlined in topic 9.0.4.1External Link. An appeal process has also been established if the council denies an extension. This process is outlined in topic 9.0.4.2.External Link

Though the updated GTA containing these three topics will not be published until after the new year, the authority outlined in topics 9.0.4.0, 9.0.4.1, and 9.0.4.2 will take effect on Jan. 1, 2021.

After Dec. 31, 2020, there is no plan to authorize COVID extensions as has been allowed during 2020. It is possible, however, that as of Jan. 1, 2021, COVID could become a circumstance that warrants an extension if it qualifies under the three tests listed in 9.0.4.0. Note that existing COVID extensions granted between Oct. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020, will expire three months after they were granted.
