Income tax slips for students
Print your form through uoZone, under the Finances and jobs tab. The form will be available on or before February 15. You don't have to include this form with your income tax—you submit it only if the government asks for it later on.
Remember that the T2202A isn't an official receipt, but rather a confirmation of the deductible fees for a given fiscal year. Only the fees you have actually paid appear on your T2202A.
For more information on your income tax return, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website.
You receive a T4A slip if you received awards, scholarships or bursaries from the University of Ottawa during the fiscal year (even if the funds come from other agencies or organizations). The slips are available on uoZone at the end of February.
For more information, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website.
If you are a student who is also an employee of the University and you received a salary in 2018, please remember to go to your University of Ottawa employee email for details about your T4/T4A.

A credit for full-time post-secondary studies is calculated based on the number of sessions that the student started and completed during the year. The amount is to be claimed by the person claiming the student as a dependant (generally the student's father or mother). This amount is not tuition fees.
