Students are not required to submit a printed copy of the T2202 form with their tax return, even if the T2202 credits are transferred to a parent. A printed copy is only required when requested by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as part of a formal audit.
The total amount of fees paid may not necessarily correspond to your T2202 because not all tuition and related fees are tax deductible.
The T2202 is based on the tax year (January to December) and not the school’s academic year (September to August).
St. Lawrence College is required to make the T2202 available to the student directly. Students must use the T2202 on their own return until the Federal Tax payable is reduced to zero. At this point, the student may transfer the balance of the credit to their parent using the information on the T2202 related to the transferring of unused credit as per the Income Tax Act. The student is required to sign the T2202 authorizing the transfer. Please see Canada Revenue Agency documentation for further clarification.
In addition to claiming eligible tuition and related fees, full time students who are enrolled in ten or more course hours per week, for three consecutive weeks in a month, are eligible to claim an Education Deduction amount for each month of full time study. Part time students must be enrolled in a program that lasted at least 3 consecutive weeks and required at least 12 hours of instruction each month to qualify for the education amount. Please see Canada Revenue Agency documentation for further clarification.
You can use your T2202 form even if the address is not correct. Remember that it is not necessary for students to submit the T2202 form with the tax return, but they must produce it if requested by Revenue Canada. We strongly suggest that you keep your address updated by contacting Student Services (Brockville or Cornwall students) or your Academic School (Kingston students).
If you feel that the information on your T2202 form is incorrect, please review all of these FAQ’s to ensure that you understand the period they are issued for and the amounts that are included and excluded.

Unfortunately, we cannot. In-depth questions regarding the use of the T2202 form in the tax preparation process should be directed to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Tax guides are available from any CRA office or Canada Post Office. CRA also publishes a booklet called “Students & Income Tax” – Government form P105(E). This publication is available in HTML or PDF formats. For people with visual impairments, it is also available in e-text, braille or large print formats.
Yes, you can print your T2202 as many times as you like. Keep in mind that the T2202 is not submitted with a student’s tax return but is required when transferring amounts to someone else as permitted by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or if you are being audited.
