Question about Student Grant (T4A Box 105) if you withdraw from university semester due to medical circumstances.

I was wondering if you receive an undergraduate student grant and you withdraw from the semester due to medical circumstances, what would you specify it as when filing? What type of scholarship would that be?

Question about Student Grant (T4A Box 105) if you withdraw from university semester due to medical circumstances.

CRA new rules state: 

  • for 2017 and later years, to claim a scholarship exemption, you must be enrolled in an educational program in respect of which you are a qualifying student in 2017 or in 2018, or were eligible for the education amount in 2016". Also;
  • Consideration must be given to the duration of the program; any terms and conditions that apply to the award; and the period for which support is intended to be provided by the award.

You should still qualify for the full-time exemption if you were enrolled and qualified as a full-time student, and the grant applied to the program which you withdrew from. 

Here's the CRA link, and it is suggested you contact them for further clarification on this.
