Enrollment website: Enrollment FAQs

Q1. Why does the website ask so many questions about my child’s health and other information I don’t think I should have to share with you? 

  • A1: A lot of the information that is asked for is optional. The only sections you must complete are those with the word ‘Required’ next to them. In the health section, for example, the only required information is the Medical Release portion at the bottom of the form. 

Q2. Do I have to make a payment for my registration to be complete? 

  • A2. No, the system requires a payment method be selected, the only option we have on the website is ‘Check’ but this will only result in you being invoiced. We ask that all 4-H families submit their registration fees to their club leader. Check with your club leader to confirm who the check should be made out to. 

Q3. Why do I have to select projects now? Can I change them in the future? 

  • A3. This is a requirement in the new website that we can’t change. Yes, you can add or drop projects as often as you would like through May 1 of the current year.

Q4. Is there any financial assistance that I can apply for to help pay for 4-H enrollment fees? 

  • A4. Yes, families can apply for financial assistance through the El Paso County 4-H foundation. Find the application here. Instructions for submitting the application can be found at the bottom of the form.

While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
