The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires the School of Continuing Studies to issue an official income tax receipt (known as a T2202) to qualifying students who meet all the following requirements:
- Are at least 16 years of age or older;
- Were enrolled in a specified educational program as defined by Canada Revenue Agency; and
- Paid tuition fees in respect of the calendar year of more than $100 for courses taken.
For more information regarding the T2202 eligibility criteria, please visit the CRA website.
Effective January 2020, the CRA requires that students provide their Social Insurance Number (SIN) to their educational institution to be displayed on their T2202 Tuition and Enrolment certificate.
As defined by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the UofT SCS Boot Camp and Circuit Stream programs are not specified or qualifying educational programs under the taxation guidelines, and therefore not eligible for the federal tuition tax credit or the Ontario education and tuition tax credits. For this reason, a Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (T2202) will not be issued for these programs.
