Online Enrollment Opens October 1st

Enroll your K-12 child in 4-H beginning on October 1st! 

Beginning October 1st, you'll be able to review the enrollment instructions that will be available for down at the bottom of this page and then enroll online at https://in.4honline.com/.

A few things to know: when using 4HOnline, DO NOT USE Internet Explorer. Use Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari. Also, if you are a returning member, the system automatically enrolls you in the same projects you were in last year. If you will not be continuing in a project, you'll need to edit your project selections. ATTENTION: Paying online with your credit card rather than selecting to pay by check expedites your active status. Your enrollment is not active until your payment is received at Purdue. Your enrollment must be active to submit state scholarships in January, enroll your cattle in February, and more.
