How do I know when my T2202 is ready for download?

If you enrolled in an eligible program, you will receive a notice by email or mail in late February that your T2202 Tuition and Enrolment Certificate is available for download from your registration account. 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 T2202 from my student profile?

I have a UBC Extended Learning registration account.

Please note: As of 2019, the Canada Revenue Agency requires your SIN be included on T2202 Tuition and Enrolment Certificates. In order to be able to download your T2202 form when it becomes available in February, you will need to add your SIN under Vitals under your profile.

  • Go to the "Sign In" page.
  • Enter your email address and password and then click "Login".
  • After logging in, you will see "Hi, <Your Name>" near the top right of the screen.
  • In order to download your T2202 form, you need to ensure your social insurance number (SIN) is included under Vitals in your profile. To check if your SIN is recorded in your profile, click on Edit Profile. Click on Add/Edit next to Vitals. If your SIN does not appear, click CHANGE VITALS to enter your SIN. Click SUBMIT.
  • Click again on "Hi, <Your Name>" and choose "My Reports".
  • On the "My Reports" page, click "T2202 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 T2202 Tuition and Enrolment certificate. If you return to your online account later and click "View Report" again, it will generate a T2202 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.
