Yes, you control it via the Signup/Cancel Deadline in the Update Sched's Props box (accessed via Make Signup Sched page ->Do Setup Action dropdown). Click on the Learn How To link of this box for details.

At your level, it is not relevant. But for the record, it is Eastern time.

You set a group's time zone via the Configure Group page. (You can also override this for a specific signup schedule via the Update Sched's Props box).
