2017 Tuition and Enrolment Certificates (T2202A) are now available through WebAdvisor.
Effective January 1, 2017, the federal education and textbook tax credits were eliminated. This measure did not eliminate the tuition tax credit, and it does not affect the ability to carry forward unused education and textbook credit amounts from years prior to 2017. More detailed information is available at: www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/technical-information/income-tax/income-tax-folios-index/series-1-individuals/folio-2-students.
What is the difference between a T2202A, T4A and T4 form?
A T2202A (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 T2202A 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.
Up until August 31, 2017 . . .
Students can claim a textbook amount on Schedule 11 of their tax return based on the number of months in full-time or part-time enrolment as indicated on your T2202A. You do not need textbook receipts to claim the textbook amount.

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 T2202A form?
T2202A 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 T2202A?
T2202As for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 2015 and 2016 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.
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 HelpDesk at 519-452-4430 x4357. Please have your student number ready.
I paid over $100 for my course but there isn't a T2202A 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 "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".
If you still have concerns over the amounts showing on your T2202A, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 519-452-4277. If your issue needs to be transferred to Fees Services, 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 T2202A. Why doesn't my form show the full amount I paid?
The T2202A 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 2017 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 2018 term during the 2017 year. Will that amount show on my 2017 T2202A?
No. The T2202A form only reflects the actual learning period that you attended during the taxation year.

My parents/accountant want my T2202A 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 T2202A form available on WebAdvisor to provide to their parents/accountant.
Will you fax me my T2202A? Will you email me my T2202A?
No. Due to high volume, the College will not fax or make special arrangements for delivery. Email is not always confidential and it is difficult to verify the identity of the email sender. It is preferable for the student to view their T2202A form available on WebAdvisor.
I need a duplicate T2202A form for a previous year.
