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 eligible fees paid 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 of full-time and part-time enrolment. Students can access their T2202 by logging onto WebAdvisor. If you are a sponsored student, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency's P105 Students and Income Tax 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 (e.g. during the 2021 tax year from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.)
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 here or by emailing 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 "Students and Income Tax" (P105 - available online 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 T2202, please contact the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may take up to five business days (excluding weekends) to respond to your email 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?
Program and course costs are made up of various fees; some are tax deductible and others are not, in accordance to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) policies. 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 two calendar years, only the amount relating to 2021 can be reported this year.
Please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency's P105 Students and Income Tax under the section "Eligible Tuition Fees".
I paid for my Winter 2022 term during the 2021 year. Will that amount show on my 2021 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; however, 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 T2202 form available on WebAdvisor is in a printable format for you to provide to your 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?
T2202s from 2015 and later are available through WebAdvisor for students to view and print. For 2015 onward there will be no duplicate T2202 forms as they are still available on WebAdvisor. You will require your username and password to access the information.
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 2021. For example, if you were in two different programs, or applied, paid and withdrew from a program, the last program in which you were active will be the one reported. The Canada Revenue Agency (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.
