About Fee Payment

Payment is important as your membership and enrolment applications cannot be processed in the absence of evidence of payment. You need to make the payment first and advise your method of payment in your membership application and course enrolment application forms.  Further, please email with the date of payment (and a copy of the receipt if possible) to facilitate identification of your payment.

Important: Please ensure you identify your payment with your name and ‘membership’ or ‘Mship’.

If you are also paying for course or excursion costs, please:

  1. First pay membership fee of $60.
  2. Then a separate single payment to be made for courses and excursions.
  3. Tag membership payments with your name and reason for payment: e.g. “Joe Bloggs membership”
  4. Tag courses and excursion payments with your name and course number(s): e.g. “Joe Bloggs 117, 554, 556”
  5. Shorten your first name with an initial if it can’t all fit.

Membership and course applications are not processed until the membership fee and any course / excursion fees are viewed in the Newcastle U3A bank account. No online payment method is available via this website.

Before filling in forms, peruse the NU3A Program Information Booklet
