The Course Enrollment Page

If the course is self-paced and the course has already begun, the start date will show today's date. This means you can start today!
Find your dashboard at home.edx.org.
If the course hasn't started yet, its start date will be listed below the course title.
After the course has started, its end date will be listed below the course title.
The Course Homepage
When you click the course title from your dashboard, you will find your course homepage. You can view upcoming deadlines and the final course end date on the right hand side details under Important Dates. When the end date is approaching soon, it will be posted there. The course end date will be labelled Course ends.
