When the semester ends, you've got a week to grab your code before it goes public, like a free account.

I suspect this would catch on better if the repos were destroyed or stayed private. Professors reuse assignments year after year and wouldn't be too happy about public solutions to all their past assignments.

At least in my university solutions to all past problems are posted anyway, we even have our own wiki for it. I imagine it's similar in other universities.

(fwiw, I use Github exactly in this way, only with public repos)
