What is a T2202A?

A T2202A is a Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate. This form displays the eligible tuition and other fees paid during a tax year and the number of months a student was enrolled in part-time and/or full-time studies.

Are they mailed?

T2202A's are not mailed. They are available only through your myJIBC account.

Are all students eligible to receive a T2202A?

T2202As are not issued in the following situations:

  • The student has paid less than $100 in tuition and fees
  • Some programs, eg Taxi, are not eligible for T2202A. However, if the training was undertaken for work purposes you may be eligible to use your payment receipt for income tax purposes. Please check with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for details.
  • You may not be eligible if you were sponsored for your training.

Why is the amount on my T2202A different from the amount I paid?

There are a few possible explanations:

  • One or more of the courses you took are not eligible. To receive a tax receipt, the course must be equal to a certain number of credits or hours.
  • Not all tuition and related fees are tax deductible. For a list of eligible fees, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency.
  • Tuition fees for courses spanning one calendar year to the next are pro-rated to each applicable year.

If the points above do not apply to your situation and your tuition tax form still doesn't reflect the amount of tuition and fees you paid, email t2202a@jibc.ca.

How do I claim my textbook allowance?

For information on this and other tax regulations, please refer to the CRA document Students and Income Tax.

For the Education amount on my T2202A (Tuition and Education Certificate), am I considered a full-time or part-time student?

To be considered a full-time student, the following criteria must be met:

  • A qualifying education program is defined in the Income Tax Act as a program that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires a minimum of 10 hours of instruction or work in the program each week (not including study time). Instruction or work includes lectures, practical training and laboratory work.

To be considered a part-time student, the following criteria must be met:

  • A specified education program is defined in the Income Tax Act as a program that lasts at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires at least 12 hours of instruction each month.

The Canada Revenue Agency needs an explanation about my "Undeclared" program. What do I need to do?

Please contact t2202a@jibc.ca to request a confirmation of enrolment. There is a nominal fee for this service.
