Sure, you can either modify the properties of the maintanance plan or you can modify the properties of the job that comprises the maintenence plan.

In SQL Server Management Studio open up the maintenance plan folder in the left pane. Choose the maintenance plan you want to modify by right-clicking and choosing modify. There should be a calendar button that you can click on for each subplan where you can set the frequency and time the job will run.
