If you enroll in a self-paced course long before its end date, the course will feature suggested deadlines on assignments to help you plan and stay on-track. You can view this by clicking the Dates tab.
The final end date is not part of the suggested schedule and cannot be shifted.
The suggested schedule in the paid verified track
If you check the Dates tab in a self-paced course, you may notice a message 'We’ve built a suggested schedule to help you stay on track. But don’t worry—it’s flexible so you can learn at your own pace.'
If you're enrolled in the verified certificate track and you miss a suggested deadline, you can shift your due dates.
There will also be a link to Shift due dates next to the Submit button on the assignment page.
You'll find a message prompting you to shift your due dates only after you miss a suggested deadline. It's not possible to shift the dates before missing a deadline.
The suggested schedule in the free audit track
In most courses, graded assignments aren't available in the free audit track. Graded assignments on the Dates tab and on the Progress page will show as locked to audit track learners.
