What is a T2202A?
T2202As are tuition tax receipts issued to all students who paid tuition for courses in the previous calendar year. These show the amount of tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months eligible for the education deduction. For more information on filing your income tax return, please go to Revenue Canada's P105 Students help page.

Can SFU give the T2202A information to my parents/accountant/income tax preparer?

Under no circumstances will any information about the student be released to another individual without first receiving this authorization.
Am I still considered a full time student during a Co-op work term?
According to the CRA a student enrolled in a co-op term (and taking no classes) is considered neither a full time nor part time student. CRA regulations require SFU to report "0" months on the T2202A tax form when a student is enrolled only in co-op during a term.
I am a student with disabilities enrolled part-time. Where do I get more information on making a full-time claim?
According to Canada Revenue Agency a student is also considered a full-time student if they were enrolled in a qualifying education program, attended only part-time, and are eligible for the disability tax credit for the year.
I paid a deposit fee but will not be attending SFU until next year. Do I get a T2202A?
No. Deposits are not eligible expenses for T2202A purposes unless you have actually attended classes. If you paid an admission deposit and then declined your offer of admission, you will not receive a T2202A.
I am an international student. Why do I need a T2202A?
SFU is required to report this information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian income tax returns.
As a resident of Canada you are required to file a Canadian income tax return. The T2202A is a tax receipt for the tuition you have paid that can be used as a deduction against income you may have earned while in Canada. Your employer issues a T4 for salaries or wages you have earned while in Canada. The University issues a T4A for scholarships, bursaries or other monetary awards you received during the calendar year.
If you have not received any income in Canada during the calendar year, you may be able to use the T2202A against income you or your parents received in your home country. Contact an income tax professional or International Services for Students for more information.
