How do I set read-only access for a limited time?

My institution runs a variety of programs that all use Canvas as an LMS but run on different timelines (not a semester schedule). The program leads decided they want students to retain read-only access for six months after the end of a given program. Can anyone help me out thinking through the best way to set this up? Would it work to 1. put the last day of the program as the course conclude date and 2. check the box that "Students can only participate in the course between these dates" and 3. six months after the program end go back into course settings and check the box "Restrict students from viewing this course after end date"? Is there a better or more automated way to do this? Or any implications that may not be on my radar? Thanks!
