  • Read About:  T2202A Tuition and Enrolment Certificate

    What is T2202A (Tuition and Enrolment Certificate)?

    This certificate is issued to a student who was enrolled during the calendar year in a qualifying educational program or a specified educational program at a post-secondary institution, such as a college or university, or at an institution certified by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
    Tuition fees paid in respect of the calendar year to any one institution have to be more than $100. Fees paid to an institution certified by ESDC or to a post-secondary educational institution in Canada for courses that are not at a post-secondary school level, have to be for courses taken to get or improve skills in an occupation, and the student has to be 16 years of age or older before the end of the year.

    Why is the amount on my T2202A different from the amount I paid?

    There are a few possible reasons:

    • Eligible tuition fees are based on the calendar year for which the fees are assessed, not the date on which the fees are paid.
    • Courses taken for purposes of academic upgrading to allow entry into a university or college program are not eligible, such as MATH099, EAP and UPRE courses.
    • Not all tuition and related fees are tax deductible.

    When are the T2202As available?

    T2202As for the current calendar year (January to December) is available on February 28 of the following year.

    Most recent three calendar years are available on myAC. Students can view and print forms as needed.

    For further information, please visit Canada Revenue Agency website.

    Who can I contact regarding T2202A inquires?

    For questions regarding tuition amounts, program duration or registration, please email T2202@alexandercollege.ca.
    Please include your full name and student ID number in all correspondence.

    Please be advised that the College does not provide any tax advice.

Refunds

    • General Rules (all students)
      1. Refunds are granted only for courses officially dropped prior to the published deadline, based on the date the courses are dropped.
      2. For courses which are dropped or swapped for a course of lesser value during the regular registration period, an administrative fee of $50 per course will be applied. The aforementioned administrative fees are applicable regardless of whether the funds are returned to the student or retained in the student account as tuition credit.
      3. Refund requests are processed within 4-6 weeks, after all required supporting documentation has been submitted.
      4. Refunds are issued in the name of the student, unless an alternate request is submitted by the student in writing. Refund cheques may be picked up at the Student Financial Services Office.

      6. Refunds for non-school fees deposited by mistake are subject to an administrative fee of $50 for refund by cheque or $100 by wire transfer.

In the event that a new international student is refused an initial study permit, the prepayment amount is 100% refundable, less the application Fee of $200 and administrative fees of $300.

      Temporary Amendment (Winter 2021):  For students who are permitted to register while under Restoration status, but later receive study permit denial, the total refundable amount will also be less any portion of the prepayment amount which has been applied to term tuition and fees (if applicable), subject to the Course Drop/Withdrawal Policy.

    • International Students- Local International and Returning Students (Study Permit Extensions)

      In the event that a student is refused a study permit extension, and is not registered for courses, any remaining balance is 100% refundable, less the application fee of $200 and administrative fees of $300, if applicable.

      Procedure
      The student must submit the following:

      • Refusal of Study Permit form

      • Bank Information Request form (if requesting a refund by wire transfer)
      • Letter of Authorization from the student (if the account is not in the name of the student)
