How do I delete a site I created?

If you are an Instructor (in a course site) or an Owner (in a collaboration site), you can softly delete the site.

Soft deletion means the site can be restored for up to a year past the deletion date, after which it will be permanently deleted and unrecoverable.

The decision to softly delete a site should be considered very carefully because deleting it will prevent access to and use of the site by others.

Important: If someone else created a site or it is still in use by others in the site (even if you created it), you should not delete it.  Instead, you should hide it from your active sites by following the steps to hide the site in What is the Preferences tool?
