T2202 & T4A

Social Insurance Number Requirement for T2202 Forms


The University of Guelph, as the issuer of T2202 and T4A forms, has a legislated obligation to ask for and report SINs on the forms. For this reason, students are required to submit their SIN to the University of Guelph through WebAdvisor. WebAdvisor is a secure site.

To submit your SIN, log in to WebAdvisor. In the menu on the left-hand side of your screen, under "Financial Information," click on "SIN Entry/Status." Enter your SIN and click "Submit."

Read more about the T2202 form on the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website.

The Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (T2202) is a tuition tax receipt issued to all students for tuition related to the calendar year. It shows the amount of tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months eligible for the education deduction, if applicable.

Institutions are required to file the paid amount up to the maximum eligible amount on the T2202 tax receipt. If a payment is made after the original T2202 is issued, we can subsequently file an amendment to reflect the payments received up to the maximum eligible amount for the tax year. Please email accquest@uoguelph.ca to notify us of the payments.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has limited the number of characters to 12 characters for first names and 20 characters for last names; therefore, your name may be truncated for T2202 purposes. This will not affect your ability to use this document.

If your address has changed, you do not need to request an update. This will not affect your ability to use this document.

The T2202 for the previous tax year will be available in late February and can be accessed through WebAdvisor. After logging in, click on the "Tax Information" box and then select the appropriate year. The tax years will display only for the years that there is actual information available. No certificate is produced if total eligible fees are less than $100 for the tax year. The PDF report will appear on the screen for downloading/printing. The University will not issue paper copies of the form.

The T2202 will only be accessible if you still have WebAdvisor access. This access is available for approximately one year after graduation or last registration. If your account is still active but you are having issues logging into WebAdvisor (i.e., your password isn't working), please contact the CCS Help Centre.

If you no longer have access to WebAdvisor, you must request T2202 forms from Enrolment Services. You can make this request in person at Enrolment Services (University Centre, Level 3), by email to es@uoguelph.ca, or by mail to Enrolment Services, UC Level 3, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, N1G 2W1. The request must include your name, ID number, the year required, and your signature (a scanned signature for requests by email). For further information, please call (519) 824-4120 ext. 58731 or email es@uoguelph.ca.

The CRA offers a brochure about Students and Income Tax.

T4A: A Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income (T4A) is provided by the University to students who have received awards, including scholarships and bursaries, in the previous tax year. These slips are mailed to students in late February each year. For more information, please contact Human Resources by phone at (519) 824-4120 ext. 53374 or by email at hr@uoguelph.ca.

Students who are residents of Quebec: The RL-8 slip is a tax form of the Ministère du Revenu du Québec and is intended only for Quebec residents. Please visit or email the Student Accounts Office to request your RL-8 form.

US students: US students can use the T2202 to file their US tax return. The University does not issue 1098T tax receipts.

International students: T2202 information is provided to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian tax returns. Contact a tax professional to determine whether you need to file a Canadian tax return and/or a tax return in your country of origin.
