How to add your Social Insurance Number (SIN) in Aurora:

  • Login to Aurora.
  • Select ‘Personal Information’.
  • Select ‘Verify my SIN’.


5. About Tax form Types:

Tax forms are released annually, towards the end of February and are ONLY available online through your Aurora Account.


T2202’s: A T2202 form is for the tuition tax credit, these forms are issued to students and are used to claim the Tuition Tax Credit.


T4A’s: A T4A slip reports income from many different sources. As a student, your T4A slip will report the scholarship or bursary income you received while you were registered at the University of Manitoba.

To access your tax forms:
