The Graduate Retention Program became effective January 1, 2008. From 2000-2007, the Government of Saskatchewan had two previous graduate tax benefit programs for graduates from post-secondary programs.
Who is Eligible?
Anyone who graduates in 2006 or beyond from an approved program at an eligible institution and lives in Saskatchewan is eligible. Approved programs must:
• be equivalent to at least six months of full-time study and result in a certificate, diploma, or undergraduate degree; or,
• provide journeypersons certification.
How do I apply?
• Graduates of Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions
• Graduates of post-secondary institutions outside of Saskatchewan
How will my tuition rebate be calculated?
Your rebate will be based on the actual tuition you paid as indicated on the T2202A tax receipts issued by your post-secondary institution - up to the maximum tuition rebate amount you are eligible for based on your program.
How do I claim my rebate?
As an eligible graduate, you will be issued a GRP certificate by the Ministry of Advanced Education, Employment and Labour to be submitted along with the amount of tuition paid when filing your Saskatchewan income tax.
For examples of unique situations (ie. more than one credential, more than one institution attended) see Scenarios or check out the Frequently asked Questions and Answers section on the Government of Saskatchewan site or contact the Graduate Retention Program.
There is also a calculator that calculates your potential GRP on the official governmental site.
