Submitting assignments past the term/course date

Is there a way we can allow students in to submit assignments to Canvas courses that have gone past the term date? At times we grant major extensions for some students who have medical reasons that go beyond term dates. When I try to set a Due Date or an Until Date in the portal, it gives me an error saying that it cannot be past the term date.



I read somewhere that Section dates can override course dates and term dates, but it does not seem to override the assignment portals. I thought I could put the student into their own section with the dates that suit them, but that doesn't seem to work.


I don't know how to resolve this situation without removing the term completely from the entire course. If I did this then all students could fully participate until the student finally would submit their work. How can I resolve this?
