The T2202A form is required to support your claim of eligible tuition and education amounts for the year. Claim your eligible tuition fees and education amounts based on the calendar year the course was taken and not the year the fees were paid.
The tax form required by students to claim the Tuition, Education and Textbook Tax Credit, the T2202A, is available online only. It can be accessed through Aurora Student.
Steps for retrieving tax information:Step 1: Login to Aurora Student (n.b. you still have access even if you have graduated)
Step 2: Select Enrolment & Academic Records, then 'Canadian Tax Forms'
Step 3: Choose the applicable option:
- 'For the Tax year 2006 and prior' your form will automatically open in the format the government expects. To change the year you are viewing you should use the drop down menu in the upper left corner.
- 'For the Tax year 2007 & forward' you will have the option to print or view the data. You may of course print the view data screen; however it is not the format the government (or your accountant) would expect. If you have viewed the printable version at one point, the next time you enter it will show that you are printing a duplicate copy, this copy is still a valid form.
Tax receipts for the previous tax year will be available through Aurora Student on or before the last day of February; unfortunately a more specific date cannot be provided.
Any questions about potential errors or omissions on your T2202A should be directed to the Registrar's Office at (204) 474-9420 or 1-800-432-1960 ext 9420.
Check the Canada Revenue Agency website for detailed information on eligible amounts and claim procedures.
