When Participation is set to Course in the course settings of a course, if you select an end date with the date picker and click on whitespace or attempt to click on Update course details, the date changes to either the day after the start date or a date way off (years) into the future.

No workaround exists at this time. 

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Create a course

  2. Go to the Course Settings

  3. Change the Participation to Course

  4. Select an End date in the future using the calendar

  5. Once selected, click on whitespace outside of the fields or try to update the course details

  6. Notice the date has changed to a date in the future or has changed to a day after the start date
