Fees and Enrolment



Unlike many U3As, Manning Valley U3A Inc. operates on a ‘user pays’ basis. This complicates the enrolment process a little, but we believe it is the most equitable arrangement for our members.

Before attending any class or activity each person must become a member of Manning Valley U3A Inc.

In addition to the annual membership fee, each course and activity has a course fee that must be paid at the start of each term. The fee covers the costs of providing the venue, printed material etc, depending on the requirements of each course. Our Newsletter includes a list of the courses being offered and their associated fees. Please see the Refund Policy in the Governance section of this website.


How to join U3A

You may join online using this link (link opens the MyU3A website) or join by contacting a committee member, with payment of the applicable membership fee. Currently annual membership (starting from enrolment day and finishing on the 31st December) is $20, or $10 for new members joining after 1st July. Payment can be made by electronic funds transfer. Membership fees go towards the cost of membership badges, insurance, administration, and other operating expenses.


How to enrol in a course

U3A members can login to MyU3A to enrol in courses (during the enrolment period).

Before the start of each term, an Enrolment Support Morning is conducted at the Manning Uniting Church, Albert Street, Taree so that people can seek assistance in initiating or renewing their membership if due, and also enrol in the term’s courses and activities. Members are notified of the date and time of upcoming Enrolment Support Morning; non-members should contact the Secretary.

It is requested that members enrol in the time period designated in the newsletter and on our annual calendar/planner. On time enrolment assists with the compilation of attendance rolls, helps course leaders/presenters plan their classes, and helps to fulfil insurance requirements. Late enrolments will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
