The T2202/T2202A (Tuition, Education and Textbooks Amount Certificate) is a tuition and education tax credit certificate issued by a post-secondary institution to certify a student's eligibility for tuition, education and textbook amounts.

The T4A (Other Income - scholarships, fellowships, bursaries and study grants (awards)) is a slip issued by a post-secondary institution for amounts that were paid to recipient’s who received scholarships, fellowships, bursaries, honorariums in a tax year.  For further details please see the CRA website.

What's new?

  • T4A – will be available on mySAIT on Feb. 28. Those who do not have access to mySAIT will receive a T4A by mail. 
  • Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) - Effective the 2019 tax year, post-secondary institutions are now required to provide the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) with the social insurance numbers from qualifying students for the T2202 Tuition Tax Credit. Please refer to the CRA website for more information.

Eligibility

Tax documents (T2202,T2202A,T4A) are issued to students who are over 16 years of age before the end of the taxation year. Students who were less than 16 years of age before the end of the taxation year (January to December) and who took courses at the post-secondary level can obtain their tax documents by submitting a request ticket through Freshdesk. Please be sure to include your student ID in your request.

To be eligible for the tuition tax credit, you must have total eligible tuition fees exceeding $100 in a taxation year. Students must be enrolled in a course of studies considered post-secondary level education, or a course of studies that allows the student to obtain or improve skills in an occupation in order to be eligible for a T2202A.

I took Academic Upgrading, am I eligible for a T2202/T2202A form? 
No, Academic Upgrading is not eligible as these high school level courses prepare the student for future program enrollment, not provide or obtain skills in an occupation.
My T2202/T2202A form does not match the amount that I paid to SAIT.

The T2202/T2202A form only reflects the eligible fees for courses occurring within a tax year. Not all fees that are paid are eligible fees. The T2202/T2202A only covers terms of studies that occur during the tax year in which you attended training or classes, not when you paid for the tuition.

For example:

  • If you paid for your courses in 2020 but they didn't start until 2021, you will claim the amount on your 2021 tax return.
  • If you are in a course that runs from November 2020 to February 2021, the amount that will be reflected on your 2020 return will be pro-rated based on the number of hours that occurred in 2020.
What fees are considered eligible fees and included in my T2202/T2202A tuition amount?
Academic fees, admission fees, charges for the use of library or laboratory facilities, examination fees, application fees (but only if the student later enrolls in the institution), charges for a certificate, diploma, or degree, mandatory computer service fees, only books that are included in the total fees for a correspondence course and athletic and health services fees.
What fees are not eligible and not included in my T2202/T2202A tuition amount?
Student Association fees, medical expenses, transportation and parking, meals and lodging, costs of goods of lasting value that you will keep (for example uniforms), professional association fees, cost of books not included in correspondence course fees, UPass charges, upgrading and leisure class fees.
How do I calculate my education and textbook credits?
These credits are calculated based on the number of full or part-time months from your T2202/T2202A. For full details refer to Income Tax folio S1-F2-C1 on the CRA website www.cra-arc.gc.ca.
How are the months calculated for my T2202/T2202A? 

Full-time eligibility: to be eligible for a full-time month, the student must attend a minimum of 10 hours per week for three consecutive weeks.

Part-time eligibility: the student must attend at least three consecutive weeks to equal a minimum of 12 hours in a month.

Classes at SAIT are scheduled to run until 10 minutes to the hour. This affects your full or part-time month eligibility. For example, a class scheduled form from 1 pm until 2:50 pm qualifies for 2.83 hours/week towards a month calculation for the T2202/T2202A.

My child attended a sports or summer camp at SAIT last summer. Will I be able to get a T2202/T2202A form?

Sport and summer camps do not qualify as tuition so a T2202/T2202A form is not produced.

Effective the 2017 tax year, the Child Fitness Tax credit has been eliminated.

Registration receipts can be obtained contacting SAIT's Finance Department by submitting a request ticket through Freshdesk. Please be sure to include your child's full name and date of birth in your request.

Who will receive a T4A from SAIT?

Students who received a scholarship, bursary, honorarium, grant or other financial support from SAIT for that tax year will receive a T4A, which can be accessed in mySAIT. 

Non-incorporated vendors who supplied service to SAIT during the prior tax year will also receive a T4A. 

I received a student award, do I need anything for my taxes?
