What if I have a hold on my account for unpaid fees from that calendar year?

If you owe fees for the tax year in which you need a T2202, you can print your tax receipt from your Student Centre. However, the T2202 will show only the amounts paid, and will not reflect any fees which have not been paid from that calendar year. Not all fees paid are tax deductible. Please refer to Claiming Tuition Fees & the Education Amount for more information.

After all fees have been paid for the tax year, you can request an updated T2202 receipt through T2202A@ucalgary.ca.  Once the T2202 has been updated, you will receive an email the receipt is updated, which can be printed from the Student Centre.


I am a past student and no longer attending, how do I get my tax slip?

You can still access your Student Centre even after graduation as long as you remember your eID and password. For help recovering your eID or password, please contact the IT help desk at 403.220.5555.

Alternatively, you may request the T2202 tax form by submitting a written request via fax, mail or email to Enrolment Services. Requests must include:

  • your full legal name
  • UCID number
  • date of birth
  • signature

Once the request has been submitted, the tax form can be mailed to the mailing address on file, or emailed to a UCalgary email address only.


I have an approved Graduate Studies payment plan, how does this affect my T2202?

The T2202 is based on payments made in the calendar/tax year assessment of January 1 - December 31. If your payment plan covers multiple terms, only the amount of taxable fees paid in the calendar/tax year will be listed on the T2202. Once the remaining fees have been paid, graduate students need to email T2202A@ucalgary.ca to request an updated T2202 based on all fees paid in the calendar/tax year. To verify your assessment and payments, visit your Student Centre finances section, “Account Inquiry and Payments”.
