(OnlineEd – Jeff Sorg) – The deadline to complete NMLS CE for MLO license renewal is December 31, 2014. However, NMLS Rules allow course providers seven days to report (credit bank) their course completions to NMLS. This means licensees will not want to wait until the last minute before completing their education requirement. If the licensee completes before the deadline, but their provider does not submit until after the deadline, the licensee is prevented from submitting for renewal on time. It is the licensees responsibility to complete in enough time for their courses to be credit banked with NMLS by the provider.
At OnlineEd®, we report your course completions just as fast as we possibly can. This means completions are usually reported to NMLS not later than the next business day from completion (weekends, holidays, and NMLS closures excluded). For completions during the At Risk to Miss and Guaranteed To Miss periods, we upload completions several times daily. While we do as much as we possibly can to upload in a timely manner, it remains the licensee’s responsibility to know the rules and complete in time for provider reporting to take place before the deadline.
In order to allow enough time for CE to be reported into the system and for the MLO to file for renewal, NMLS sets Smart Deadlines each year. These 2014 Smart Deadlines are:
SMART: Course(s) reported by your provider to NMLS by Friday, December 19
AT RISK TO MISS: Course(s) reported by your provider to NMLS by Friday, December 26
GUARANTEED TO MISS: Course(s) reported by your provider to NMLS on Wednesday, December 31
