Is there a grace period if your LEED accreditation expires to renew? Thanks, Jim
Administrative Coordinator, LEED Support, U.S. Green Building Council
James, Thank you for contacting USGBC regarding your credentials. If people show that they're taking continuing education credits or plan on taking them, we can give people up to a 30 day extension on their credentials (from the time the credential expired). Any longer than that, however, and we treat this on a case by case basis. We typically do not grant extensions longer than 30 days unless there's a specific reason, such as family hardship, death in the family, medical issues, accidents, layoffs, or other hardships beyond someone's control. Does this help? If you have questions about your specific credentials, please feel free to contact me ( Thanks!

Though I've been able to find the information I need to find from my credentials overview, and self-report hours, I cannot find anything on renewing my BD&C credentials as you state above that I should see, which I think is due at the end of October. Does this only appear on my dashboard when I've completed the required Learning Units? I'm concerned that if this is the case, units that should have been reported directly by providers within the last couple weeks are not showing up promptly. I fear that my credentials will expire while I wait for completed learning units to post to my account.
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Kenneth, you are correct that the opportunity to renew your credentials will not appear until you have completed all required CEU hours. If you are concerned about courses you recently took not populating you can always self-report them for now and then delete duplicates that may appear. You have 90 days after the end of your reporting period to renew without penalty, but all CMP activities must be earned between the reporting period start and end dates. I hope that helps. Thank you for your commitment as a LEED Professional.
Dear Erin I have completed all 6 webinars since 24 October 2013. However my account is not upgraded to LEED AP BD + C. Please advice Thank you

Why is there not a Project Administrator role when documenting through the project experience path?
