Canvas and Time Zones

Depending on the campus where you are taking classes, it is your responsibility to adjust your personal time zone in Canvas accordingly.

  • For Boston: Eastern.
  • For LA: Pacific.
  • For the Netherlands/Castle Program: Change your time zone to GMT/UTC + 1h during Standard Time, or GMT/UTC + 2h during Daylight Saving Time.

By default, Canvas is set as a whole to EST (Eastern Standard Time). However, if you are in LA, you may have realized that this means all your assignment settings and calendar events are off by three hours! The only way to change time zones in Canvas is via your personal settings, as this will override the EST Canvas-wide time zone, and won't count assignments as late if you turn it at 10 a.m. Pacific time, or 1 p.m. Eastern time.

Instructions on how to change your time zone are available in this Canvas Guide.
