If I am in the middle of a task at the conclusion of my shift, may I continue working to finish what I’m doing “off the clock,” even if I don’t care about getting paid?

No, any “off the clock” work is strictly prohibited. All time worked must be accurately recorded. If you are unable to complete a work task within your regularly scheduled hours, you must consult with your supervisor prior to performing any work outside of your scheduled working hours.  Leadership and supervisors within the school/college or administrative unit will determine whether to allow additional work outside of your scheduled shift. Overtime is any any additional hours worked over 40 within the University workweek of Thursday to Wednesday.
