4-H Online Image

4-HOnline is where all of the necessary forms and paperwork is kept for children to participate in 4-H events.

All 4-HOnline accounts are reset each year, so it is important to go in and re-enroll children every calendar year.

How to create a NEW family profile:

  1. Go to
  2. Click “Don’t have an account?” if you have never enrolled in 4-H before using 4HOnline.
    1. Note: Your family profile must be associated with a valid email address. This will be your login and you will receive communications to this address. It will also be the email address where a password reset will be sent, if needed.
    2. The email address you provide can only be associated with one family profile. If 4HOnline does not accept your email address, you may already have a 4HOnline family account. Contact your local Extension office for assistance.
  3. Select “North Carolina” from the drop-down menu
  4. Select “North Carolina 4-H and Youth Development” for the Institution
  5. Select “Beaufort” from the drop-down menu.
  6. Complete your family’s information. Required fields are marked in red and must be completed to move to the next screen. If you have mistakenly chosen the wrong county just hit the back button to adjust it before moving on to the next screen.
  7. Click the “Create Account” button.
  8. Enter your family’s address information and click “Verify.” The verification process may require you to select an appropriate USPS format.
  9. After the address is verified, your family profile has been created! You will receive an email confirming your family profile. The next screen will allow you to add the first member to your family.
  10. Add all youth in your family that will be participating in 4-H as members in the system. You will go through each of the screens and fill out necessary information to move on to the next screen.
  11. If your child is in a club, you will choose that club in the club section, if they are not associated with a club you will choose “Member at Large”
  12. For project, this is just an interest selection. You can pick whatever project you like from the list.
  13. Go through all of the screens and “submit enrollment”

How to re-enroll:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter in your email address and password if you remember it. You can reset your password if you can’t remember. If you think you may have an account already but do not remember the email address you used to sign up, you can reach out to our 4-H Agent and ask.
