In self-paced courses, course materials are all available as soon as the course begins. You can work at your own pace up until the end date of the course. On a browser, you can view the end date on the course homepage under Upcoming Dates or under the Important Dates tab. On the mobile app, you can check the Dates tab.
You can submit graded assignments or exams at any time before the end date to earn points towards your final score.
The certificate will be awarded as soon as you earn the minimum passing score, but you can continue working up until the end date to improve your score.
If you have just enrolled in a self-paced course for the first time, your course may show suggested deadlines on assignments to help you plan and stay on-track. If you see a message that you have missed a suggested deadline, you can shift your due dates. This will not affect any of the progress you have made in the course so far.
