Payment Options for Membership:

The preferred method is Option 1 -  it enables immediate access to course enrolment and reduces work for our volunteers

Using your credit card online via MyU3A (Member Log-In), through U3A Banyule eWay payment gateway. This is the preferred method as it saves time and there is less cash handling in the office.  Important:  There are no additional fees for paying by credit card.  Once you have paid, you will automatically be returned to MyU3A and your payment will automatically be credited to your MyU3A account.  A step-by-step guide to making payments using eWay can be viewed here.

2.  Cheque, cash or Electronic Funds Transfer not using MyU3A: A Membership Application Form  must be completed, with payment attached (or receipt if EFT) and mailed to the office (see Payment Options for details). Processing may take up to two weeks.
