See here for steps on how to change the timezone in Canvas. Keep in mind that when Daylight Savings Time transitions occur, the submission deadlines in your timezone will shift accordingly.

Please note that although Assignment 0 is due at the same time as Assignment 1, it is extremely important to complete Assignment 0 BEFORE starting on Assignment 1.

If you do not submit Assignment 0 by the scheduled due date, it is an automatic zero.
