The University of Calgary issues T2202 slips for tuition and fees which indicate the number of eligible months you were a full-time or part-time student during the tax year.
The T2202 will only contain PAID fees assessed in the tax year (January – December). If you have not paid fees assessed in the tax year, they will be absent from the T2202.
Tuition tax receipts are available in late February for the preceding tax year. You can access your T2202 slip through My UCalgary.
The T4A is issued electronically to students who receive UCalgary scholarships, awards, bursaries fellowships etc.
T4 and T4As are accessed through My UCalgary.
Students who have received a UCalgary scholarship/award/bursary can access their T4A slip by logging in at my.ucalgary.ca and selecting "view my T4/T4A" under "Quick Links".
You will receive a T4A if the total amount you received in grants + scholarships + awards exceeds $500.
As long as you have a verified email in your Student Aid account, you will be notified electronically to view and print your T4As.
You will only receive a printed T4A in the mail if:
- You received an Alberta scholarship that is not available online
- You have not verified you email address
- Your account has been set to paper communications.
If you need T4As for Federal grants you must log in to your account at NSLSC Online Services.
Please note: students generally are not required to pay taxes on grant funding they have received. If you have questions about your T4As and filing taxes, you should contact the CRA directly.
Loans are not considered income. T4As are not issued for student loan funding.
The UCalgary T4A will only contain payments for non-employment income issued by the University of Calgary. This includes internally administered awards, research stipends, etc. If you received funds from an External Award, that organization would have to issue a T4A if payment was more than $500.00.
Payments made to the student account by a Third-Party Sponsor will be reflected as payments made on the T2202 tax receipt. Sponsored Students will not receive a T4A from UCalgary. The institution paying fees to the University of Calgary would be responsible for producing a T4A if the amount paid is more than $500.00.
Social Insurance Number Information
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires all Canadian post-secondary institutions to collect students' Social Insurance Numbers (SINs) on the T2202 Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (formerly T2202A).
T2202 tax receipts are provided to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian tax returns. Contact a tax professional to determine whether you need to file a Canadian tax return and/or a tax return in your country of origin. Please review the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website for details on filing taxes as an international student studying in Canada.
If you're ineligible for a SIN, you are not required to submit an International Tax Number (ITN) in lieu of the SIN.
For additional information on navigating Canadian taxes as an international student, please review UCalgary's International Student Services webpage, or contact them for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions
UCalgary is required to attempt to collect and report SIN’s to Canada Revenue Agency. If you don't supply a SIN, then a T2202 tax receipt will be issued with the SIN populated as zeros.
As per IC82-2R2 (Social Insurance Number Legislation that Relates to the Preparation of Information Slips), a penalty of $100 can be applied for not submitting a SIN for a T2202.
Yes! The Student Union hosts a volunteer tax program for current campus community members, including staff, faculty, and students. Information on the SU Volunteer Tax Program can be found on their website.
The information on your tax receipts may be incorrect depending on multiple factors such as when payments were made, who issued the funds, and so on. For concerns or problems with the information contained in the T2202 or T4A tax receipt, please contact Enrolment Services.
If you owe fees for the tax year in which you need a T2202, you can print your tax receipt from Student Centre. However, the T2202 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 and the education amount on Revenue Canada's website for more information.
Once all fees have been paid for the tax year, you can request an updated T2202 receipt by submitting a “Request T2202 Update” Service Request through the Student Centre. Instructions for completing a service request can be found here. If you require additional help, please contact Enrolment Services for assistance.
Once the SIN is on file, you can request an updated T2202 receipt by submitting a “Request T2202 Update” Service Request through the Student Centre. Instructions for completing a service request can be found here.
Not all the fees you pay are tax deductible, so some will not appear on the T2202. In general, funds that are collected by UCalgary for third parties are not present on the T2202: This includes Students' Union fees, Health and Dental insurance, UPass, and so on. Please contact Enrolment Services for more information on which fees are included on the document.
No, they won't. The UCalgary T4A will only contain payments for non-employment income issued by the University of Calgary. If you receive awards, scholarships, or funding from an external stakeholder, then that external funder would have to issue you a T4A (as long as the payment was more than $500).
The T2202 will only display paid fees assessed in the tax year (Jan. to Dec.). If you paid your fees late, they may not be included in the T2202. Once the fees have been received by UCalgary, you can request an updated T2202 receipt by submitting a “Request T2202 Update” Service Request through the Student Centre. Instructions for completing a service request can be found here, or contact Enrolment Services for assistance.
The T4A will only show funds that were disbursed within the tax/calendar year (Jan. to Dec.), not the award year (July to June). While you may have been issued the award within the tax year, but the relevant factor is the date when the funds were issued.
Here's an example - let's say you win an award of $1000 in Oct. 2021 but you don't receive the money until Jan. 2022. Even though this award was issued in the 2021 award year, it wasn't disbursed within the 2021 tax year. So for this example, the award would appear on your 2022 T4A (not your 2021 T4A).
If you have concerns about what is present on your T4A slip, please contact Enrolment Services.
