If you're a full-time or part-time student, Royal Roads University will provide you with T2202 tax forms.
These tax forms allow you to claim eligible tuition and/or fees for federal and provincial or territorial tax purposes, where applicable.
How to get your form
Tax forms are available by February 28 for the previous tax year.
You can download your form, or we will email it to you, depending on your situation:
- If you're enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, you can download your tax form on MyAdmin.
- If you completed an eligible course from Professional and Continuing Studies, we'll email you your tax form. There's no option to download your form for these courses.
- If you're enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program and you completed an eligible course from Professional and Continuing Studies, your tuition amounts will be combined into a single T2202 form. You can download your tax form on MyAdmin.
How to download your forms
If you're a student, you can download your tax forms on MyAdmin:
- Log in to MyAdmin with your username and password.
- Select the “MyT2202” link from the left side menu.
- Select the tax year you require.
- Once the form has been generated, you can print or save the PDF.
Install the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat viewer to avoid issues with viewing the T2202 form.
Request a tax form reissue
Form T2202 reports only the tuition you have paid and the number of months you've been enrolled in a qualifying educational course or program.
It does not provide assurance that you're eligible for:
- tuition, education or textbook credit
- scholarship exemption
- participation in the lifelong learning plan
You must determine if you're eligible for these tax incentives according to your own circumstances. Find information for students on the Canada Revenue Agency's website or consult your tax advisor.

Eligible tuition fees that will be on your T2202 tax form include the following:
- admission fees

Visit the Canada Revenue Agency for more information.
Understanding tuition amounts on your tax form
The eligible tuition amount on your T2202 form may differ from the amount that you have paid in tuition in a given year. The tax form amount reflects the dollar value of courses taken in a calendar year (from January to December), not the year in which you paid for them.
If you pay for a course this calendar year, but you will take the course next calendar year (e.g., you pay for a course in December, but you will take the course in January of the following year), the amount for that course will be included in the next year's tax form.
Providing your Social Insurance Number (SIN)
Since the 2019 tax year, all post-secondary institutions have been required to provide a social insurance number (SIN) on T2202 forms for the Canada Revenue Agency. Royal Roads University provides a T2202 form for all students registered in credit courses and eligible non-credit courses.
Your SIN data will be stored in our secure student management database and will only be accessible by authorized staff.
If you're a non-resident of Canada, you're not required to provide a SIN.
If you don't have a SIN, you can find out how to apply for one on the CRA website.
How to provide your SIN if you're enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program
If you're enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, you can provide your SIN in two ways:
How to provide your SIN if you're enrolled in an eligible Professional and Continuing Studies course
If you're enrolled in an eligible Professional and Continuing Studies course, you can provide your SIN in two ways:
- Log in to your account through the Professional and Continuing Studies website and add your SIN under "My Account" in the left-side menu.
- Phone Student Accounts at 1.800.788.8028, Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Royal Roads University is required to report T2202 information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian income tax returns. If you're an international student, you'll receive a T2202.
You're required to file a Canadian income tax return if you're a resident of Canada. The T2202 is a tax receipt for tuition paid that can be used as a deduction against income you earn while in Canada.
