You’re very likely to hear Israelis says דֶּדְלַיִן when referring to the cutoff point we call in English a deadline, but there are proper Hebrew terms as well, in widespread use:

תַּאֲרִיךְ אַחֲרוֹןfinal date

תַּאֲרִיךְ יַעַדtarget date

For example:

הַיּוֹם זֶה הַמּוֹעֵד הָאַחֲרוֹן לְהֵרָשֵׁם לְקוּרְס שֶׁלָּנוּ הַמַּתְחִיל בְּיָנוּאָר, וּלְקַבֵּל הֲנָחָה שֶׁל מָאתַיִם שְׁקָלִים.
