2014 Smart Deadlines for MLO License Renewal

(c) Can Stock Photo(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

30,000 Mortgage Loan Originators Still Need to Complete Their CE


(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) Over 30,000 mortgage loan originators must still meet their CE requirement before the national deadline, which is December 31. A few states have earlier deadlines, however. Georgia MLOs, for example, must complete their education requirements before October 31.

CE for mortgage brokers is relatively simple to complete. Approved providers can deliver their approved courses either online or by live lecture.  The NMLS approves providers and qualifying courses. It is important to look for the required course approval number when searching for courses and providers. The NMLS requires posting of provider and course approval numbers when the advertiser uses the NMLS logo in advertising.

The 8-hour approved NMLS course is to include 3 hours of federal laws and regulations, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional loans (loans other than 30-year mortgage loans), and a 1 hour elective course. To find out if your state has a requirement for additional hours beyond the NMLS requirement, check our list of state-specific deadlines or visit the NMLS Website.

To understand all that is involved with the license renewal process and to get renewed on time with the least amount of trouble, applicants should be sure to watch this helpful video.
