SLC is required to report this information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian income tax returns.
While living in Canada, you are required to file a Canadian income tax return. Like an employer issue a T4 for salaries or wages you have earned while in Canada, similarly the College issues a T4A for scholarships, bursaries, or other monetary awards you received during the calendar year.
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 the Registration Services Officers by emailing email@example.com
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. If after reviewing this information you feel that your form is incorrect, please contact the Registration Services Officers by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your form.
As per the Income Tax Act, students may not combine receipts from institutions to meet the minimum eligible fee.
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.
No, not even your parents can obtain confidential information without your written consent. St. Lawrence College gathers and maintains information used for purposes of admission, registration and other fundamental activities related to being a member of the college community and to attending a public post-secondary institution in Ontario. The policy regarding the release of information about students is intended to protect the individual student's right to privacy and the confidentiality of his or her record. Personal Information Protection Guidelines and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) govern access to confidential information at St. Lawrence College.
Based on the Canada Revenue Agency guidelines (See FAQ #15), not every student will be eligible to receive a T2202. However, if you are eligible to receive a T2202, they will not be made available via slc.me until the end of February. Eligible recipients should be able to access their T2202 on and after February 28.
