Disable Extension Requests for Your Class

You can turn off both automatic and manual extension requests for your class. You can grant extensions manually even if you turn off extension requests.

By default, when you create a new course, your students can request manual extensions, but not automatic extensions. New sections, copied sections, and courses created by copying a section all copy the extension settings from the original section.
