The PSW Program specialized programming fee is $1000.00 for 2012-2013. A student activity fee at an institution offering secondary school credits is not a tuition fee and, therefore, does not qualify for a T2202A claim for income tax. T2202As are granted by post-secondary learning institutions for tuition paid. The TVDSB Schools of Adult and Continuing Education are not post-secondary learning institutions, so we do not issue T2202As. The fee paid for the PSW Program was cost recovery in nature, i.e. it covered lab and materials fee, textbook and workbook, 2 uniforms and 2 school crests, photo identification badge, Standard First Aid and Level C CPR/
