Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between a T2202, T4A and T4 form?
A T2202 (or Tuition and Enrolment Certificate) is an income tax form issued to students for activity for the calendar year. It shows the amount of tuition that can be deducted for income tax purposes as well as the number of months for the education deduction. Students can access their T2202 by logging onto WebAdvisor. If you are a sponsored student, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency's "Students and Income Tax" (P105 available on the web at http://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/forms-publications/publications/p105) under the section "Eligible Tuition Fees" to determine if you are eligible to claim these amounts.
A T4A is a tax slip issued to students for scholarships, bursaries and other monetary awards from Fanshawe College in the calendar year. Fanshawe College issues T4As for bursaries or scholarships even if the funds came from other agencies or organizations. Amounts on T4As must be reported as other income on the student's tax return. T4As will be mailed to students by the end of February.

A T4 is a tax slip issued by an employer to employees for employment income they earned in the calendar year. Students who were employed on campus (e.g. work study, peer tutor, part-time work) will receive a T4 from Fanshawe. T4s will be mailed by the end of February.
Do I qualify for a T2202 form?
T2202 forms are only issued to students who have paid more than $100 in eligible fees for post-secondary level courses beginning and ending in a particular calendar year.
How do I get my T2202?
T2202s from 2014 and later are available through WebAdvisor for students to view and print. Students will require their username and password to access the information. If you don't remember your password, select Option 2 on the WebAdvisor page. You will need your student number.
I can't remember how to access WebAdvisor. How do I do it?
Visit the WebAdvisor page on Fanshawe's website. You will need your username and password. If you don't remember your password, select Option 2 on the WebAdvisor page. If you still have problems, contact the IT Service Desk at email@example.com. Please have your student number ready.
I paid over $100 for my course, but there isn't a T2202 available for me. Aren't all Fanshawe courses eligible?
No, some courses and fees are not eligible. For example, the student activity fee and bus pass fee as well as general interest, preparatory, and driver's education courses are not eligible. Please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency's (CRA) "P105 Students and Income Tax".
If you still have concerns over the amounts showing on your T2202, please contact the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may take up to 48 hours (excluding weekends) to respond to your call due to a high volume of inquiries from February to April.
I paid more than the amount showing on my T2202. Why doesn't my form show the full amount I paid?
The T2202 form will only reflect the eligible fees. For example, the student activity fee and bus pass fee are not eligible fees. Therefore the tax form will be less than the amount you paid. As well, if your courses ran over 2 calendar years, only the amount relating to 2020 can be reported this year.
Please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency's "Students and Income Tax" P105 - available on the web at cra-arc.gc.ca under the section "Eligible Tuition Fees".
I paid for my Winter 2021 term during the 2020 year. Will that amount show on my 2020 T2202?
No. The T2202 form only reflects the actual learning period that you attended during the taxation year.
I don't have a computer at home. How can I get my information?
Please contact email@example.com to discuss options.
I printed my T2202 form, but my address has changed. Do I need a new one?
No, you are not required to mail the T2202 with your tax forms. The address on the form does not have to match your current address. Please ensure you have notified Fanshawe College of your change of address. This can be done online through WebAdvisor.
My parents/accountant want my T2202 form. Will you send it directly to them for me?
No. If a hard copy is required, the student can print a copy of their T2202 form available on WebAdvisor to provide to their parents/accountant.
Will you email or fax me my T2202?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options.
I need a duplicate T2202 form for a previous year. How do I get this?
For 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, there will be no duplicate T2202 forms as they are still available on WebAdvisor.
What program name will be shown on my T2202?
The T2202 will indicate the name of your most recent program even if it is not the one you took in 2020. For example, if you were in 2 different programs, or applied, paid, and withdrew from a program, the last program you were active in will be the one reported. CRA is only looking to make sure that you were registered in a post-secondary program. The program name listed does not affect your tax return.
