Work at your own pace until the end date
You can work at your own pace up until the final, fixed end date of the course. If the end date is soon, on a browser, you can view the end date on the course homepage under Upcoming Dates or under the 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.
Stay on track with the Personalized, Suggested Schedule
In self-paced courses, all course materials are available as soon as the course opens.
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. This suggested schedule is personalized based on the date you first enrolled.
Note: *The due dates on open response assessments are fixed. The suggested schedule does not apply to open response assessments, but rather the course instructor manually sets these due dates. These due dates cannot be shifted.
If you miss 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.
Earn the Certificate
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.
