Term dates within Canvas are set by our University of Findlay database. The terms are as follows:
|Fall||Aug 8th - Dec 19th|
|Spring||Jan 6th - May 9th|
|Summer||May 5th - Aug 28th|
Courses will automatically conclude at the end of it's designated term date. This will move your course into an archive state to where it can no longer be updated but can still be accessed. If for some reason you need to extend the time that you or your students need to make changes in your course, you may override the session term dates. To do this, navigate to your course settings and locate the term start and end date fields within the Course Details.
Once you have entered in the dates that you require, make sure you select the check box that states 'Users can only participate in the course between these dates. This will override any term availability settings'. Once changed, click the Update Course Details button at the bottom of the screen.
**If the course concludes before changes are made, please submit a ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org.
