How do I know when my T2202A is ready for download?

If you enrolled in an eligible course(s) or program(s), you will receive a notice by email or mail that your T2202A tax certificate is available for download from your online account. You should receive this notice in late February in the calendar year following your course or program start date. If you do not receive this notification, please contact the program department responsible for your program to confirm your contact information.

How do I download and print my T2202A from my student profile?

I have a UBC Extended Learning online registration account.

  • Go to the "Sign In" page.
  • Enter your email address and password and then click "Login".
  • After logging in, you will see your name near the top right of the screen. Click on the down arrow to view the sub-menu and choose "My Reports".
  • On the "My Reports" page, click "T2202A Tax Receipts".
  • The default tax year should be the previous calendar year. Click "View Report". A new window will open to display the certificate as a PDF file. Clicking "View Report" the first time will create an original T2202A certificate. If you return to your online account later and click "View Report" again, it will generate a T2202A marked as duplicate.
  • If you forgot your password, please use the password recovery process to reset your password. You will be asked to provide the answer to a security question before you can complete this process.
