Hi, Very good morning. I am only Legacy LEED AP, around eight years. Now I am planning to take LEED GD+(BD+C) at the end of March 2017 and apply for LEED Fellow 2017. But when I click submit the application, it goes to credentials page and shows that No credentials. Please help me, to submit my application

Hi Sundararaj, To be eligible to apply you must meet the requirements as of January 1 of the year in which you apply. If you have had the LEED AP credential for 8 years already, and pass the specialty exam this year, you will be eligible to apply next year.
