Always Learning

This API retrieves the start and end dates for a course, and the census date for a course. These dates are determined by the term in which the course lives. Course scheduler is identified based on the Term access start date and Term access end date. Please note that course Start/End Dates added via Admin pages are not reflected in course schedule REST route. The census date for a term is the date at which the roster and certain other details of a course (such as dates) are locked (it is also the date at which LearningStudio ascertains final course enrollment for the purpose of billing clients per enrollment).
