Q: What is the T2202A?
A: The T2202A Tuition, Education, and Textbook Amounts Certificate is an official tax receipt issued to eligible students for use in claiming education expenses on an income tax return. It identifies the amount of eligible tuition and fees that were paid in the preceding calendar year, as well as the number of months of full-time or part-time attendance. Amounts are pro-rated for programs or courses that start and end in different calendar years.
Note: A calendar year is the period from January 1 through December 31.
Q: What do you mean by eligible tuition and fees?
A: Not all fees are eligible to be included on the T2202A. To qualify as a deduction for income tax purposes, fees must be more than $100 and must be for non-credit courses and/or credit courses taken at the post-secondary level (e.g. academic upgrading courses do not qualify). In addition, non-tuition fees such as Students’ Association and health and dental fees are not eligible.
Only courses taken in the following programs are eligible: Accounting Technician, Administrative Professional, Advanced Education in Orthopedics, Apprenticeship Prep, Business Administration, Community Support Worker, Day Home Provider, Early Learning and Child Care, Health Care Aide, Hospital Unit Clerk, Medical Device Reprocessing Technician, Mental Health Rehabilitation, Open Studies, Pharmacy Technician, Physical Therapy Assistant, Practical Nurse, Social Work, Therapeutic Recreation, and Transitions to Employment.

Q: If I pay my tuition and fees for my Winter 2017 term in 2016, will it be included on my T2202A for 2016?
A: No, only tuition and fees paid for courses that started in 2016 are eligible.
Q: If I am taking courses full-time, why does my T2202A say I was part-time?
A: The full-time/part-time status on the T2202A is based on the hours of attendance in a month, not on your student status. The federal government’s definition of full-time hours may be different than NorQuest College’s definition. Also, the start date of a course may be at the end of a month, thus affecting the hours calculated for that month.
Note: Some students may be eligible to claim full-time status under the Disability Tax Credit. Refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website for more information.

Q: Why does my T2202A say ‘Revised’? Can I still use this form for my tax return?
A: A T2202A that denotes ‘Revised’ is when a manual adjustment was made to your account. The revised version will reflect the most up-to-date information. It is considered a valid receipt for income tax purposes.
Q: What if a third party (e.g. my parents) wants to claim the amount on the T2202A?
