Tax receipts (T2202A)

What is a T2202A?

A T2202A is a Canadian tax form that contains the amount of eligible tuition and/or fees paid for the tax year, as well as the number of months a student was registered in full- or part-time studies.

Where can I find my T2202A tax form?

Your T2202A tax form will NOT be mailed. Your tax form will be available through myUFV. To access your T2202A tax form, please log in and make the following selections:

» Student Information » Canadian Tax Forms » T2202A Tax Credit Form

Note: that the tax form will open in a new window as a PDF. Ensure your pop-up blockers are disabled to view and print the form.

Why is some of my tuition not on my T2202A tax form?

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has guidelines that determine which courses and/or fees are eligible and UFV must follow these guidelines. For that reason, the tuition for some courses will not be noted on your T2202A tax form. This may affect the tuition amount you are eligible to claim as well as your full/part-time months.

As an example, Upgrading and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses do not qualify for tuition amounts and will not be included in the calculation of full- or part-time months.

For more information about course eligibility, information about tuition tax credit and education tax credits on the Canada Revenue Agency website.

Why does my T2202A tax form has number of months noted?

When you do your taxes, you will use the number of months to calculate the education tax credit and textbook tax credit. You can claim only one education amount for each month, either full- or part-time. Your eligible months will be listed under the appropriate column on your T2202A.

The calculation is as follows:

  • Full-time: registered in a qualifying program (or eligible courses) that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires a minimum of 10 hours of instruction or work per week (does not include study time).

  • Part-time: registered in a qualifying program (or eligible courses) that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires a minimum of 12 hours of instruction or work per month (does not include study time).
