What if I have a hold on my account for unpaid fees from that calendar year?

If you owe fees for the tax year in which you need a T2202A, you can print your tax receipt from your Student Centre. However, the T2202A will show only the amounts paid, and will not reflect any fees which have not been paid from that calendar year. Not all fees paid are tax deductible. Please refer to Claiming Tuition Fees & the Education Amount for more information.

I am a past student and no longer attending, how do I get my tax slip?

You can still access your Student Centre even after graduation as long as you remember your eID and password. For help recovering your eID or password, please contact the IT help desk at 403.220.5555.

Alternatively, you may request the T2202A tax form by submitting a written request via fax, mail or email to Enrolment Services. Requests must include:

  • your full legal name
  • UCID number
  • date of birth
  • signature

Unless otherwise specified, your tax form will be sent to the mailing address listed on file as visible in the online Student Centre. Please ensure your contact information is current.

Can I claim transit costs I have paid?

Transit receipts are not required at the time of filing. However, copies of receipts and transit passes may be required if Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requests them from you at a later date. Additional information can be found from the Canada Revenue Agency.

You may obtain a copy by submitting a written request via fax or mail to Enrolment Services. Requests must include:

I have an approved Graduate Studies payment plan, how does this affect my T2202A?

The T2202A is based on payments made in the calendar/tax year assessment of January 1 - December 31. If your payment plan covers multiple terms, only the amount of fees paid in the calendar/tax year will be listed on the T2202A. Once the remaining fees have been paid, graduate students need to contact Enrolment Services directly to receive an updated T2202A based on all fees paid in the calendar/tax year. To verify your assessment and payments, visit your Student Centre finances section, “Account Inquiry and Payments”.
