Under no circumstances will any information about the student be released to another individual without first receiving this authorization.

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.

I am a US student: what is SFU's IRS number?

SFU's IRS number is 30-0505256.

Where can I get more information on the T2202A?
