Information about tuition and education tax certificates for students

Published on January 25 2013


Tuition and education deduction tax certificate – T2202A
 

The T2202A tuition and education deduction tax certificate is available online via the student portal. Log in to my.brocku.ca, select the Student Self Serve tab and then go to TaxCertificates to view or download the form as a PDF. The T2202A certificate is not mailed to students.

 

Scholarship, bursary, fellowship, award or prize income tax slip –T4A
 

Students who have received scholarship, award, bursary, prize or fellowship money will receive a T4A income slip.
These income tax slips are also available online via the student portal. To access your tax slip, please log in to my.brocku.ca select the Student Self Serve tab and then click Tax – T4A. Select the year and click Go to download the tax slip in PDF format.

Students who received a financial award in the calendar year but were not registered in the fall/winter session will receive their T4A in the mail. It will be sent to the current mailing address on file.

Please note that Brock University has provided the information contained in these tax slips to the Canada Revenue Agency.

If you are a student enrolled in a program that entitles you to claim the education amount, then the full amount of the scholarship, bursary, fellowship, award or prize received and reflected on your T4A slip qualifies for the scholarship exemption and is not reported as income on your tax return. Please consult your tax guide regarding Line 130 on your tax return for full details.

 

Social Insurance Number
 

Please ensure your Social Insurance Number has been added to your personal information in your student portal. Brock requires this information for the completion of your tax forms. The following is an excerpt from the General Income Tax and Benefit Guide regarding Social Insurance Numbers:

Your SIN is the authorized number for income tax purposes under section 237 of the Income Tax Act and is used under certain federal programs. You have to give it to anyone who prepares information slips (such as a T3, T4 or T5 slip) for you. Each time you do not give it when you are supposed to, you may have to pay a $100 penalty. Check your slips. If your SIN is missing or is incorrect, inform the slip preparer.
