I live in Ontario and I am a person with a permanent disability. I got free tuition from OSAP (all grants no loans) but I still received a T2202A slip. Do I claim this?

if I do claim this what section do I enter it and which amount do I use? there is an amount for Jan 2017 to Apr 2017 and a separate amount for Sept 2017 to Dec 2017 and also a total amount.


UPDATE 3/29/19

There have been some changes to the Tuition Credit on a Provincial level for Ontario and Saskatchewan for 2018 and New Brunswick as of 2017. Tuition is no longer a provincial credit for students in those three (3) provinces. 

Therefore, any Provincial amounts to enter the tuition transfer will not be available, as seen in previous years.

If you have received a T2202A, you claim it on your taxes. And here is how:

How do I claim my tuition fees?

Enter your tuition and education information in the DEDUCTIONS > Students step of TurboTax.

Note: For 2017 and later tax years, the federal education and textbook amounts have been eliminated. However, if you had unused federal tuition, education and textbook amounts from prior years, you can still carry them forward to your 2017 and future returns.

For tax year 2016 and prior years:

The education and textbook credit is calculated based on the number full-time months or part-time months you were in school, as reported on your T2202A or TL11 slips. Therefore, when you entered your T2202A or TL11 slips to claim the tuition amount, TurboTax also automatically claimed the education and textbook credit.

To claim your tuition fees:

1. Select Find in the top-right corner of your screen and type “student” into the search field.

2. Select Students from the options that appear, and then select Go.

3. On the Student Profile step, check the box for Tuition Fees, as well as any others that apply, and then select Continue.

4. Follow the instructions on your screen to enter your information.


If you have tuition amounts in a different currency (for example, USD), visit our TurboTax FAQ on claiming tuition to schools outside Canada.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
