Canadian Tax Forms and Receipts
The following Canadian tax forms and receipts will be available to eligible students by the end of February of each year. An email notification will be sent to your UAlberta email account once the forms have been made available for the current tax year.
T2202A - Tuition and Enrolment Certificate
The T2202A tax form is issued for income tax purposes to all students who paid tuition and eligible fees.
Detailed information about tuition and months of attendance with regard to taxes can be found on the Canada Revenue Agency website, including the P105 Students and Income Tax publication.
To access T2202A certificates in Bear Tracks, select “T2202A Tax Form” under the “Financials” on the menu on the left and select the desired tax year. Please note, computers require Adobe Reader to open and print T2202A certificates.
If you require a T2202A certificate from a previous taxation year not available on Bear Tracks, or are unable to access Bear Tracks, please submit a Request for Duplicate T2202A form to Student Connect by mail, fax, or in person. Processing time will vary depending on how the request is made.
T4A - Pension and Other Income in Canada
You will receive a T4A tax form for any awards and/or bursaries you receive, for taxation purposes. To access T4A certificates in Bear Tracks, select “T4A Tax Form” under the “Financials” on the menu on the left and select the desired tax year. Please note, computers require Adobe Reader to open and print T4A certificates.
In order to receive your T4A electronically, the Canada Revenue Agency requires that you provide consent, otherwise a paper copy will be mailed to your address listed in Bear Tracks. Please take the following steps to provide consent:
- Sign into your Bear Tracks account.
- Navigate to the “Financials” section.
- Click on the “T4A” tab.
- Select “yes”.
- Click “submit” to consent.
You only need to provide consent once for T4A tax forms distributed by the Office of the Registrar to receive your T4A electronically for all future years. You can change the status of your consent at any time.
Please be advised that you may also receive T4As issued by Human Resource Services that are found under the "Employees" section of Bear Tracks. See Human Resource Services' Tax Slips page for more information.
If you have provided consent, you can access your T4A in Bear Tracks. If you have not provided consent, or updated your consent status to “No”, your T4A tax form will be mailed to your address listed in Bear Tracks. Please make sure your address is up to date.
T4As for years prior to 2017 will not be available on Bear Tracks. Re-prints for T4As from previous years, are available on the "My Account for Individuals" page on the CRA website, or can be requested through Student Connect.
U-Pass Tax Receipt
You can access your official U-Pass Tax Receipt in Bear Tracks by navigating to the 'U-Pass Tax Receipt' page under the 'Student Financials' menu. If you are looking for U-Pass tax receipts from previous years or if you have questions about your U-Pass Tax Receipt, please contact Financial Services.
Third Party Access to Tax Forms
In compliance with Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP), forms will be issued to third parties (including parents and accountants) only with prior written authorization of the student.
Former students will only be able to access their tax forms through Bear Tracks if they have continually maintained their access to Bear Tracks. If you no longer have access to Bear Tracks and require one of the above tax forms, please follow the actions detailed under the relevant section(s).
Students who attended Augustana Faculty (formerly Augustana University College) prior to 2006 must obtain their tax forms directly from the Augustana office.
