Canadian Tax Forms

Form T2202 Tuition, Education, and Textbook Amount Certificate
Effective January 2020 Canada Revenue Agency's T2202 form will replace the T2202A form. The new T2202 form requires your Social Insurance Number (SIN) to be reported.

Subsection 237(l) of the Income Tax Act requires individuals who reside or are employed in Canada to give their SIN, upon request, to their information slip preparers. Those people without a SIN have to apply for one at the nearest Canada Employment Centre within 15 days of the date their information slip preparers ask for it. When these persons receive their SIN, they then have 15 days to give it to their information slip preparers. Those people who do not do so can be charged a penalty of $100 for each failure, under subsection 162(6) of the Act.

Please ensure you have provided your SIN by February 1, 2020. Contact Anne Rasmussen at rasmusse@up.edu or 800.546.3633 if you have any questions regarding your SIN submission.

Eligible students who attend a cohort program based in Canada will be sent an email to their up.edu account with directions on how to access Form T2202 online on or before the last day of February each year.

The University of Portland was advised in 1999 by Canada Revenue Agency that the tuition paid to the University of Portland to attend the program at its Canadian campus qualifies for the "tuition tax credit" for purposes of paragraph 118.5 (1)(a) of the Canadian Income Tax Act because the University's Canadian campus is considered to be an "educational institution in Canada."

The form T2202 supports a student's ability to claim the "tuition tax credit" for Canadian income tax purposes. In the form we have noted if you are a full time student. As specified on the form, in order to claim this credit:

  • The student must be enrolled at an educational institution in Canada, of which the University of Portland Canadian campus qualifies; and
  • The educational institution must be a university or college or other educational institution offering courses at the post-secondary level; and
  • Total tuition paid to the University of Portland-Canadian campus must exceed $100 for the year; and
  • The fees must not have been paid on your behalf or reimbursed by your employer or a Government of Canada or a Province of Canada

It is important to understand the University of Portland is not asserting that you will be entitled to a tax credit for tuition paid to the University of Portland if you receive a T2202A form. You must ensure you meet all other requirements under the Canadian Income Tax Act to claim the "tuition tax credit" for tuition paid to the University of Portland. We suggest that you consult with an income tax advisor in Canada to determine whether or not you can claim the "tuition tax credit."
