Goods and services tax (GST)

Some—but not all—Continuing Studies courses are subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST). If GST is payable, it will say so in the tuition fee details on the course page.

Income tax receipts

After you register for a course, you’ll receive a confirmation receipt. Keep this receipt, as it is your official income tax receipt.

If your UVic tuition fees exceed $100 in one calendar year, they may qualify as a tax credit. To determine whether your tuition fees qualify, consult the Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. More information can be found on our Student and Income Taxes page.
