  • Must be 21 years of age or older by December 31 of the year of admission;
  • Must not have been enrolled in a formal education program for at least one year prior to the beginning of degree studies.  For BScN, applicants must have been away from formal education for a minimum of two years;
  • Must not have any recent unfavourable academic performance;
  • Must have demonstrated potential for success in degree studies through academic accomplishments.

Mature applicants must possess the published subject requirements, or equivalents and submit official copies of transcripts from high school and any post secondary institutions attended.  Applicants must also provide a resume outlining work and volunteer experience since full-time attendance at school. *Please note that Mature Student testing is not applicable to degree level programs.

Please note that student numbers will not be released over the phone by the Computer Helpdesk.

If students choose not to complete the placement assessment, they must start with Communications Essentials. Further information is available in acceptance packages or by visiting the CPA Website. Even if you are not required to complete Communications Essentials you will still be required to complete the mandatory number of communications courses to graduate from your program. The CPA test cannot grant you an exemption for graduation purposes.

T2202A – Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts

According to Canada Revenue Agency, a student in an applied degree or work term is considered eligible for the education amount only during the months attending the educational institution. Therefore, students who are on their work terms would not be eligible for the education amount during those months.

T2202A forms are issued to students who have paid more than $100.00 in eligible fees for courses beginning and ending in a particular calendar year. To be eligible for an education tax credit, the program of study must last at least three consecutive weeks and at least twelve hours per month.

For 2004 and subsequent taxation years, official Tuition and Education Amount Certificates (T2202As) will be available online at by February 28 each year. Forms will not be automatically mailed to students as in previous years.

The Tuition and Education Amount Certificates for tax years 2004 and greater are available at the end of February for the previous calendar year at You will need your student ID number and your Personal Identification Number (PIN).

  • Select Login to Banner
  • Enter Student ID number and PIN
  • Select Canadian Tax Form
  • Select tax year (e.g. 2005)
  • Select T2202A Tax Credit Form

Two options will be available:

  • View Data – this is not an official receipt and is for information purposes only
  • Printable Form – make this selection only if you are ready to print the receipt

To Print T2202A

  • Select Printable Form. Click Submit. Please note: If you select continue this will mark your taxation record as printed. If not printed at this time, any subsequent receipts will be marked Duplicate.
  • Select Continue
  • Select Print on browser menu

The receipt will print on two pages: Page 1 – Tuition and Education Amount Certificate Page 2 – Designation for the transfer of an amount to spouse or common-law partner, parent, or grandparent.

A qualifying full-time educational program is a program that is provided by a designated educational institution providing credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate that lasts at least three consecutive weeks and requires a minimum of 10 hours of instruction or work in the program each week (not including study time, or Central Michigan studies). A program is not considered a qualifying educational program if the student receives an allowance, benefit, grant, or is reimbursed for expenses (not including a scholarship, fellowship, bursary, or prize for achievement; or certain benefits by way of loans or financial assistance under certain government legislation).

A specified part-time educational program is one that consists of courses providing credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate lasting at least 3 consecutive weeks and requires at least 12 hours of instruction each month.

Students may be eligible for the education tax credit for each month of part-time or full-time registration. The T2202A Tuition and Education Credit Certificate will reflect the number of months of enrolment that are eligible to be considered as part time or full time study. Further details concerning the Tuition and Education Tax Credit may be found at Canada Revenue Agency’s website or by telephone at 1-800-959-8281.

Your T2202A tax information will continue to be available for seven years at

You need to have your son/daughter access and print it for you. Note that students must use the Tuition & Education Credit Certificate (T2202A) on their own tax return until the Federal Tax payable is reduced to zero, after which the student may then transfer the balance of the credit to another eligible party using the reverse side of the T2202A form, as per the Income Tax Act. This requires the student’s signature. Please note that there is an official College policy and Federal and Provincial legislation regarding the release of student information which is intended to protect individual student’s right to privacy and the confidentiality of his/her record.

Questions regarding the use of the T2202A form should be referred to a qualified tax consultant, or to Canada Revenue Agency by telephone at 1-800-959-8281 or refer to their website at . The information on Georgian College’s web site is not intended as taxation advice and should not be relied upon in the preparation of a taxation return.

  • Please indicate what year you are requesting

Receipts will be mailed out as soon as possible, usually within 7 business days. We use Canada Post regular mail. We do not make courier or pick up arrangements.

Students only may contact the Accounting Department to request a printed copy. Please call (705) 722-5147 option # 3. We will require the following information:

  • Student Name
  • Student ID number
  • Year(s) you are requesting a tax receipt

The T2202A process used to determine the number of eligible months has been changed to reflect Canada Revenue Agency regulations. Part-time students only receive a month if the program involves a minimum of 12 hours and 3 consecutive weeks in courses per calendar month. When terms end part way through a month, part-time students cannot achieve the required 12 hours and 3 consecutive weeks in that particular month. Since the minimum hours and weeks per month is not obtained, the month cannot be awarded.

You may submit the T2202A even if the address is incorrect. We would request that you update your address with Georgian College. Please contact any registration office of Georgian College to update your address or email your change to: Please include: name, student number, new address, new telephone number, if applicable, including area code.

Students who still have questions regarding the number of months on their T2202A may contact the scheduling department at:

We wish to provide faster and more efficient service to our students.

The student’s tax receipt will reflect only the “eligible fees” as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines, not all the fees that may have been paid. Receipts issued in February will cover only terms or sessions attended during the prior calendar year. As a consequence, amounts paid in November relating to the following Winter Semester that commences in January and ends in April will not be included until the next year. Tuition and related fees paid for courses that extend beyond the calendar year-end will be pro-rated on the T2202A according to the period of course delivery pertaining to each calendar year. For example, if a course has an October 1 start date and a March 31 end date, only 50 percent of the tuition and related fees representing October through December period will be reflected in the current year T22002A, and the remaining 50 percent, representing January through March will be reflected on the following year’s T2202A.
