Student - How do I set my local time zone in my user account?

All dates and times throughout your Canvas courses are displayed according a course's respective time zone. However, you can set your own time zone for your user account and have your local time zone display throughout Canvas. Displaying dates in your local time may help you stay up to date on assignments and due dates, especially if your course time zone differs significantly from where you reside.

Note: If you set a time zone in your user settings, you can always view the course time zone by hovering over any date and time in your course. The text will show both the local time and course time.

NOTE: The default time zone for all Tufts Canvas course sites and all Tufts Canvas accounts is Eastern Time (US & Canada)

To set your local time zone, click on your Account button, then select Settings
