About Fee Payment


If you have read the 2021 Program and wish to renew or join Newcastle U3A for 2021, please pay the $60 membership fee BEFORE completing your membership and enrolment forms, because you will need to tell us how you paid when completing your membership/enrolment. Please tag your membership payment with your name and reason for payment. e.g.  Bloggs, Joe membership or Bloggs, J membership


For courses:  If you have chosen courses which the Program shows as having a further fee, please pay for the extra course fee BEFORE submitting your enrolment so you can advise how you paid in your enrolment form. Please include the extra fees for all courses in a single payment, separate to any membership fee you may owe. e.g. Bloggs, J 117, 332

For excursions: Please do NOT pay for excursions that have extra charges at the time of enrolment. If you are placed on an excursion, we will email you a few weeks before the date to request payment. This will avoid unnecessary refunds if circumstances change due to COVID-19.

Payment Methods

Our preferred payment method is by electronic funds transfer through your financial institution (online, on your banking app, or by cash or transfer at Newcastle Permanent). Alternatively you can post us a cheque.

IMPORTANT: For all payments, please also email with the date of payment (and a copy of the receipt if possible) so we can match your payment to you. We will process your Membership and enrolment requests in courses with extra fees, when payment is received into the Newcastle U3A bank account.
