If you are not physically located in the Eastern Standard Time (EST) zone in the U.S., it is important to adjust the time zone in your Canvas settings. For instance, if the due time of an assignment is set for 11:59 pm EST, a student on the U.S. west coast will need to submit the assignment by 8:59 pm PST.
