Tip | How to go on the waitlist

If you are disappointed to find that a course you would like to join is already full, we urge you to waitlist yourself.  This helps us know what the demand is for our courses, and whether we need to try to find more tutors for a particular subject.  Our enrolment team moves hundreds of members off Waitlists during the year.

You can go on the Waitlist for any course or event which is shown as FULL.

If your computer or device is set up to handle email links, clicking on the WAITLIST button will automatically generate an email for you, and all you have to do is click or tap on the SEND icon.

Here is the normal process, which works for most people:

  • Login to the U3APP website.
  • Go to the Courses and Enrolling page.
  • Click on WAITLIST beside the full course or event you wish to attend.  This will generate a waitlist email, which  contains the name of the course, your name and membership status.
  • IMPORTANT - click or tap your SEND icon, which sends the email to the Waitlisting system, with a copy to you.

If your system is not set up to handle email links, and clicking on the WAITLIST button doesn't create an email automatically, you need to either create the Waitlist email yourself or fix the problem on your device.  Click here for instructions.

If you are trying to enrol in a very popular course on enrolment day, and your system doesn't handle email links, we suggest you follow the instructions above to fix the problem in advance, so you are able to waitlist yourself if you aren't successful in getting a place.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.

Via the Office: after bookings have opened

  • Contact the office in person, or by email or phone.
