2022 Enrolments FAQ

I am a current member, so do I need to re-enrol?

YES. At the end of 2021, the membership is reset in the UMAS membership system. All members need to log in to re-enrol and confirm or amend their membership details for 2022.

Do I retain my previous membership number?

YES. You retain your member number forever. Even if you have previously been a member and not re-enrolled for a year or more your member number is reserved for you.

If you attended U3A during 2021, your membership number is printed on the reverse side of your membership badge.

What do I do if I have forgotten my UMAS password?

It’s easy, just go to our help guide at: https://u3awonthaggi.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/how-to-reset-umas-password.pdf

Where can I find course information?

https://u3awonthaggi.org.au/courses-activities/ or from U3A Wonthaggi’s Summer 2021/2022 Newsletter.

When can I enrol?

Enrolments open 10am, Monday 29 Nov 2021. We encourage early enrolment as there is a higher chance you will be able to enrol in the course/s of your choice.

How can I enrol?

Enrolments can be performed online or by telephone. These are U3A Wonthaggi’s preferred enrolment options.

Alternatively, you can complete and submit a form and submit it by mail to U3A Wonthaggi PO Box 322 Wonthaggi Vic 3995 or deliver it in-person on Friday 1 Dec 2021, 10.00 am to 12 noon, at the ‘Garden Room’ 239 White Road Wonthaggi Vic 3995.

How will U3A manage courses that are expected to be oversubscribed?

A number of courses will initially have all enrolling members wait listed. These courses are those that are expected to be over-subscribed. Members will be advised if they are accepted into these courses.

Will I be automatically enrolled in courses/activities?

Apart from identified wait listed courses most members are expected to be accepted into the courses they select when they enrol for 2022.

When do I pay my membership fee?

Once you have selected a course or activity a Membership fee will be charged which will show in your Cart and on your invoice. It is recommended that you use Billpay to do this as indicated on your invoice. Please include your membership number and/or your name.

How will I know if I am accepted into a wait listed course?

Before the start of Term 1 (week commencing 31 Jan) members will receive an email identifying the courses in which they have been accepted.

Will I receive a new member’s badge?

Renewing members: NO. Please retain the badge, lanyard and plastic pouch issued in 2021. If you require a replacement badge, email to secretary@u3awonthaggi.org.au

New members: YES. Your tutor/ facilitator will distribute membership badges at the start of each course or activity.

Can I include more than one emergency contact?

We request a single emergency contact only.

Why is the membership system planned to be off-line at times?

In late November, the UMAS membership system will be off-line to backup 2021 data and rollover to 2022, and again for a short time in mid-Dec so that the Program Coordinators can finalise allocation of members to classes.
