Enrol and Pay Excursions/Events

NOTE: In the interest of Members’ health, and the current concern re coronavirus (COVID-19), the U3A Banyule Committee of Management has decided to cancel all courses, classes and excursions with immediate effect until further notice.  The Office will not be staffed during this period but the U3A Banyule email address and telephone number will be monitored.  

Fees for any excursions scheduled for after 20th March, that have already been paid, will be refunded in full. If you paid via PayPal this will happen automatically but if you paid via bank transfer or in cash in the Office you may/will be contacted to get your bank account details so that your payment can be refunded to you.    [16 March 2020]



View the summary of Enrol and Pay Events in Semester 1, 2020 [as at 16 Feb 2020]


For excursions/events where payment is required at the time of enrolment (Enrol and Pay), you must pay when you enrol. The following policy has been developed to assist in the smooth and fair running of excursions/events.


Enrol and Pay Excursions/Events Policy

  1. Only members who have enrolled and paid will be able to attend excursions/events.

  2. Online payment via MyU3A (Member Log-In) is available for excursions/events which require prior payment.  It is the preferred method of payment. When you enrol, a Class Fee will appear in on your Membership Status page in MyU3A. *

  3.  Payment is also accepted by bank transfer and in the office (cash/cheque) and it will need to be recorded manually on your MyU3A record by the finance team. Payment to the Tutor/Facilitator on the day is not acceptable.

  4. For specified Enrol and Pay Excursions/Events, enrolment and payment must occur at the same time. Enrol and Pay for one event at a time - you should not enrol for any other Enrol and Pay Excursion/event until payment has been made for the first excursion/event and your MyU3A balance is zero.

  5. Where a fee is not specified initially for an Enrol and Pay Excursion/Event, this fee will be advised to members 6 weeks prior to the date of the excursion/event and enrolments will open at this time. The policy of Enrol and Pay at the same time will apply.

  6. When you enrol, a confirmation email will be generated and sent to you by MyU3A.

  7. An opening date and closing date for enrolment is specified for most Enrol and Pay Excursions/Events.

  8. If you have enrolled and are on the waiting list, payment is not required, until a place has been offered to you.

If you have any questions in relation to this procedure, please email info@u3abanyule.org.au and our support team will be in touch.


* NOTE: When paying Class Fees online, you will see a request to “Initiate payment for fees for 2020 Membership” and “You are paying $ (amount) for 2020 membership". We cannot change the wording at this stage – but continue with your payment, which will be applied to the relevant excursion/event. In the future, we hope to be able to match the wording to the actual payment being made.
