How to enter a transfer tuition amount

If you are the student and would like to transfer your tuition please see the following TurboTax FAQ- How do I transfer my unused tuition credits to someone else?


If someone transferred their tuition to you:

Before you begin, find out the federal and/or provincial amount(s) your dependant is transferring to you. Then, enter income and RRSP information for yourself into TurboTax. Finally, add your child or grandchild as a dependant. Be sure you say put all required information.

TurboTax Online:

  1. Select Find from the TurboTax menu
  2. Enter claims for dependants and select Go
  3. When prompted to review or claim any of these credits, choose Yes, then select Continue
  4. Select Enter Credit Info next to the name of the dependant who's transferring unused tuition amounts to you
  5. Select Tranfer my Child's Tuition and Education Amounts, then select Continue
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to select Tuition Transfer, enter the amount(s) of the transfer(s), then select Continue
