Financing your Telfer MBCPL

Telfer MBCPL candidates who are funding all or a portion of the program tuition fees may personally claim eligible tuition and education amounts (must exceed $100). Fees paid to the student union or association and the Alumni Association and other non-tuition fees such as meals, parking and travel are not eligible for the tuition tax credit. Candidates may be eligible for an education tax credit for each month of part-time or full-time registration. For income tax purposes, a full-time student is defined as a person actively registered in a minimum of two credits per month.

The Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate (T2202A) will reflect the number of months of enrollment eligible for consideration as part-time or full-time registration. Further details on the tuition and education amount tax credit is available in Canada Revenue Agency’s General Income Tax and Benefit Guide, by contacting CRA’s district taxation office or by visiting the Canada Revenue Agency website.

International candidates

Tuition fees for international candidates (including those from the US) are the same as fees for Canadian residents. International candidates will be required to enroll in the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) at a cost of approximately CA $624 (single coverage) per year of enrollment.
