By default, all Canvas courses end on the last day of the term according to the Academic Calendar unless you adjust that date. To give students more time to access the Canvas shell here are the steps to change your section end dates:

  1. From the Canvas course navigation menu, click Settings
  2. Click the Sections tab at the top
  3. Click the name of the section, then on the upper right click Edit Section
  4. Enter the end date of your choice.

NOTE: Changing the "course date" without changing the "section date" will not extend your course availability. Section dates overwrite course end dates. You can put a date in the Course end date for reference purposes but the course will actually use Section end date, unless the Section end date is blank, and then the course end date will be used.
