Terms create a default set of start and end dates that apply to any course added to that term. Terms can be added manually or created through SIS imports. Once a user is added to a course, terms set default dates for when users have access to courses assigned to that term. Access relates to user participation in published courses.

Canvas always includes a default term, which cannot be removed or renamed.

Note: Not all courses within a term conform to the term dates, as course or section start dates may override the term dates. Course or section overrides may be before or after the start of the term.
