Why is the college collecting my Social Insurance Number (SIN)?
Effective the 2019 tax year, all post-secondary institutions are required to provide the Canada Revenue Agency with Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) on Form T2202 (Tuition and Enrolment Certificate). A T2202 generates for all students at Assiniboine registered in credit courses and eligible non-credit courses.

How will Assiniboine collect my SIN number?
If we do not have your SIN on file, a warning will show up in your notifications when you log into your MyACC account. You then need to contact us between the hours of 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday. Note the College is closed from noon December 24th until January 2nd.

What is the T2202?
The T2202 Tuition and Enrolment Certificate is an official tax receipt issued to eligible students for use in claiming education expenses on an income tax return. It identifies the amount of eligible tuition and fees paid in the preceding calendar year, as well as the number of months of full-time or part-time attendance. Amounts are pro-rated for programs or courses that start and end in different calendar years.
Note: A calendar year is the period from January 1 through December 31.
What do you mean by eligible tuition and fees?
Not all fees are eligible to be included on the T2202. To qualify as a deduction for income tax purposes, fees must be more than $100 and must be for non-credit courses and/or credit courses taken at the post-secondary level (e.g. Academic Upgrading courses do not qualify). In addition, non-tuition fees such as Students’ Association and health and dental fees are not eligible.
Refer to the Canada Revenue Agency – Eligible tuition fees page for additional information.
When are the T2202 tax receipts available?
They will be available on MyACC by the last day of February.
How do I get a duplicate T2202 form for a previous year?
- 2010 to 2018 are available by logging into MyACC

If I pay my tuition and fees for my Winter 2020 term in 2019, will it be included on my T2202 for 2019?
No, only tuition and fees paid for courses that started or ended in 2019 are eligible.
If I am taking courses full-time, why does my T2202 state I was part-time?
The full-time/part-time status on the T2202 is based on the hours of attendance in a month, not on your student status. The federal government’s definition of full-time hours may be different than Assiniboine’s definition. Also, the start date of a course may be at the end of a month, affecting the hours calculated for that month.
I printed my T2202 form but my address has changed. Do I need a new one?
No. You are not required to mail the T2202 with your tax forms. The address on the form does not have to match your current address. Please ensure you have notified Assiniboine of your change of address for further communication. This can be done online through MyACC.
What if I have questions about filing my income tax return or understanding what I can deduct for tax purposes?
I am an international student. Why do I get a T2202?
The college is required to report T2202 information to all students to enable them to complete their Canadian income tax returns.
Residents of Canada are required to file a Canadian income tax return. The T2202 is a tax receipt for tuition paid that can be used as a deduction against income earned while in Canada.
Do non-residents of Canada need to provide a SIN?
Students who are non-residents of Canada are not required to provide a SIN.
The Canada Revenue Agency’s definition for a non-resident for tax purposes can be found here.
